Last week, Hollywood was saddened to hear about the passing of Sam Lloyd, who was best known for his role as Ted Buckland on the hit NBC/ABC series Scrubs. Shortly after, various stars took to social media to remember the late actor. Now, some of his Scrubs co-stars are opening up about their favorite memories of Lloyd.
Scrubs stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison recently discussed Sam Lloyd and opened up about what it was like to work with him on set. Faison remembered him a sweet and kind person, who was nothing like the humdrum lawyer he played on the show. He also shared one particular memory with Lloyd that he holds close to his heart:
While the two actors spoke with Extra, Zach Braff also expressed his joy in seeing so many people pay tribute to Sam Lloyd including Chance the Rapper, who’s cover of Outkast’s “Hey Ya” was once performed by Lloyd.
Braff went on to tell a bittersweet story about Lloyd, during which he could see the happiness that the late actor had been able to find:
Sam Lloyd had been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in January 2019, and it was later revealed to be metastatic lung cancer that spread to his spine, jaw and liver. Not long after his passing, his wife released a statement revealing his cause of death and thanking everyone for their support.
Losing a loved one is never easy, especially during a time like this, and it’s important that we provide support to those who are experiencing tragedy. And Donald Glover and Zach Braff seem to be doing just that with their kind words.
We here at CinemaBlend continue to extend our thoughts to Sam Lloyd’s family and loved ones during this time.
