Andy Hallett — best known for playing Angel‘s suave, friendly green demon Lorne with the ability to read people when they sang (most often at his violence-free karaoke club) — passed away March 29 following a five-year battle with congestive heart disease. He was 33. Fans will remember his voice (watch the clips below), his impeccable comedic timing (“Is there a Gepetto in the house?”), and his gift for making you see past layers of prosthetics and makeup. (“They have no music there. It doesn’t exist. Do you know what that’slike? No lullabies, no love songs. All my life I thought I was crazy,that I had ghosts in my head or something… simply because I couldhear music. Of course, I didn’t know it was music. All I knew was thatit was something… beautiful and… and painful and right. And I wasthe only one who could hear it. Then I wound up here and heard Arethafor the first time…”)
