The BBC reports that London-born actor Sachs, who was also known for his role of Ethan in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, died this morning.

In a statement posted on Sach's official website, staff paid tribute to the actor, "Please join us in raising a glass to Robin - goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much."

His ex-wife Casey Defranco also offered condolences, adding that Sachs was "a wonderful person, extraordinarily talented as an actor."
