Sam Lloyd, an actor from the TV show Scrubs, has died at 56, according to various sources.
Lloyd was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and cancer in January 2019, which eventually spread to his lungs, jaw, liver and spine. He received the diagnosis just weeks after his wife, Vanessa, gave birth to their first child, according to Variety.
Lloyd had a three-decade career, including roles on Desperate Housewives, Seinfeld, Modern Family, The West Wing, Cougar Town, Malcolm in the Middle, Flubber and Galaxy Quest, among other films and TV shows.
Scrubs sar Zach Braff paid tribute to Lloyd on Twitter, saying, “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.”
