Actor Sam Lloyd has died aged 56.

Lloyd is most well-known for playing hospital lawyer Ted Buckland in Scrubs. He appeared in 95 episodes of the series which ran from 2001 - 2009.

A career which began in the late 80s also saw him make appearances in Seinfeld, Mad About You, The West Wing, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Spin City, Desperate Housewives, Modern Family and Galaxy Quest.

He was also a member of a capella group The Blanks which appeared on Scrubs.

Entertainment Weekley reported that Llyod had been diagnosed with cancer in January 2019 when doctors discovered an inoperable brain tumour.


Actor Zach Braff, who was one of the main stars of Scrubs, paid tribute to Lloyd.

"Rest In Peace to one of the funniest actors I’ve ever had the joy of working with," Braff said on Twitter.

"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."

Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence also paid tribute.


"Thinking a lot about Sam Lloyd today," he said.

"Truly such a kind, sweet guy. He will be missed by so many.

"Spent the night watching clips of Sam (The songs! The greatest sweaty pratfall of all time!) Those who reached out, our “Scrubs family” appreciates it - he had the biggest heart of all of us. But now send all those good thoughts to his family. And to your own loved ones."
