“Nick was such a talented, funny and kind person and we were so lucky to have him as a part of our Girls family when he played Frank in episode 207.
“We will always remember the week we shared with him, his playful smile, his easy instincts, how much he made us laugh even when we had to stay up all night in the woods.
“We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts. RIP sweet Nick.”
Nick played Jessa’s teen step-brother Frank in a Girls episode titled Video Games, where he quickly turns into Hannah’s love interest.
