Lena Dunham has paid tribute to Girls actor Nick Lashaway after he died in a car crash in the US.

Nick appeared in season two episode Video Games in which Hannah (Lena) and Jessa (Jemima Kirke) visit Jessa’s parents at their country home.

He gave a hilarious performance as Jessa’s stepbrother Frank, who kisses Hannah and naively hopes for a relationship either.

Nick also appeared in The X-Files, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Last Song among others.

After hearing the sad news, Lena paid tribute to Nick on her Instagram page.

She wrote: “Nick was such a talented, funny, and kind person, and we were so lucky to have him as a part of the Girls family when he played Frank in episode 207.

“We will always remember the week we shared with him, his playful smile, his easy instincts, and how much he made us laugh even when he had to stay up all night in the woods.

“We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts.

“RIP sweet Nick.”
