Lena Dunham has led in the tributes to the actor following a car crash that took his life in Massachusetts on Sunday.

In her tribute she said: "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."

Nick also appeared in The X Files, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and The Last Song.
