"Nick was such a talented, funny and kind person and we were so lucky to have him as a part of our 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, how much he made us laugh even when we had to stay up all night in the woods," she continued about his role on the hit HBO drama from 2013.

"We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts. RIP sweet Nick."

Lashaway was pronounced dead Sunday at MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, Mass., after he was involved in a three-car crash according to MetroWest Daily News. He was 28-years-old.

Outside of Girls, Lashaway also starred in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Last Song, The X-Files and In Time.
