"We will always remember the week we shared with him, his playful smile and his easy instincts and how much he made us laugh when we 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."

Besides his role in Girls, Lashaway also appeared in the movies The 40-Year-Old Virgin, In Time and The Last Song opposite Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
