Death of Andy Hallett
After a five-year battle with heart disease and at least three additional hospitalizations, Hallett died on March 29, 2009 at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, with his father Dave Hallett by his side.
Andy Hallet was 33 years old at the time of his death.

According to a 2005 interview, about a month after filming the last episode of Angel Hallett suffered a tooth infection which led to a case of cardiomyopathy, for which he spent five days in the hospital. He did not return to acting afterward (except for a voice acting part in Geppetto’s Secret), but pursued his music career and frequently appeared at Angel- or science fiction/fantasy-related conventions.
