    "I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile on his face,"

    This morning, the showrunner of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Warren Leight, shared a heartbreaking update on Twitter: Josh Wallwork, one of the show's costumers, passed away from complications due to the coronavirus. He was just 45 years old.

    Very sad news today. One of our costumers, and a beautiful man, Josh Wallwork, passed away from complications of Covd-19. Cast and crew send love and prayers to his family and friends. We are heartbroken.

    Mariska Hargitay — the star of SVU — has since posted a tribute to Josh on Twitter, writing that she is "heartbroken" by the news.

    Heartbroken we are. I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile on his face. He brought love and kindness everywhere he went. Always ready with the joke. The SVU Corredor will never be the same. We will miss you Josh. #ForeverInOurHearts https://t.co/ihoY9kxhCe

    Actor Christopher Jackson, who worked with Josh on the CBS series Bull and was his friend, wrote to his Twitter followers that the costumer was a "beautiful soul":

    His name is Josh Wallwork. He was my friend. Today we’ve lost him due to the Corona virus. Had the pleasure to work with him on @BullCBS - one of our Incredible Wardrobe Team. He was kind and all heart and the world will miss his Beautiful Soul. Rest in Power. We will miss you.❤️
