Actor Sam Lloyd, best known for playing Ted Buckland on Scrubs has passed away. He was 56.
He was featured in shows like Seinfeld, The West Wing and Desperate Housewives – was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last year, which was later revealed to be metastatic lung cancer, which spread to his liver, spine and jawbone.
His cancer diagnosis came just weeks after his wife, Vanessa Lloyd, gave birth to their first child, Weston.
Scrubs Zach Braff and Robert Maschio were among those to share tributes on social media after hearing the tragic news.
“Rest In Peace to one of the funniest actors I’ve ever had the joy of working with. Sam Lloyd made me crack up and break character every single time we did a scene together. He could not have been a kinder man. I will forever cherish the time I had with you, Sammy,” Braff wrote.
