Nelsan Ellis 1978 – 2017

I’m stunned and heartbroken over the death of actor Nelsan Ellis (True Blood, The Butler). 39 is way too young to leave. We only got a glimpse at Nelsan’s acting possibilities. Those of us who knew him from his work will always smile at  the pitch perfect portrayal of Lafayette Reynolds on Alan Ball’s True Blood series. Rest in peace dear man.

Watch Nelsan’s famous scene as Lafayette serving up AIDS burgers to homophobic customers at Merlotte’s on True Blood.
