    In an Instagram post Wednesday that features a shot of Dunham and Lashaway from a season two episode of the HBO comedy, Dunham calls Lashaway "a talented, funny and kind person" and says she'll remember "his playful smile" and "easy instincts."

    Aside from "Girls," Lashaway starred as a young Fox Mulder in a 1998 episode of "The X-Files." He also had small roles in films including Steve Carell's "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and "The Last Song," which co-starred Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.
