Hallett, whose singing demon was one of the best things about the latter years of the Buffy spin-off, died with his father at his side, reports E! Online. The actor had a history of heart problems over the last few years, and had been hospitalized more than once during that period. A funeral service for friends and family is said to be being planned for this weekend.

Hallett was 33 years old.

Very, very sad. I remember hearing that he had health problems after Angel, but this is a surprise. I'm sure Joss will say something. Maybe even dedicate an ep of Dollhouse? They did work very closely for a long time.

In a strange twist of Buffy-related news, Alexis Denisof and Alyson Hannigan had their child yesterday too.
