Former US Office star Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute) paid tribute to the actor on Twitter on Monday evening (4th June) with a clip from the show, in which Hank (Dane) reluctantly inducts him as the “official” security supervisor of the branch under Michael’s (Steve Carell) orders.
“RIP Hugh Dane, AKA Hank the security guard,” he wrote. “He was one of the greats. So kind, funny, talented. We will all miss him.”
I never knew the actor from anything else but he played the character in my favorite TV show of all time perfectly, which can’t be forgotten. I really hope everyone that knew Hugh Dane understands that there are millions like me that feel the same. 💚 pic.twitter.com/oPtZsTeqAV
