Nick Holly, one of the people behind the creation of Australian soap opera Sons and Daughters, has died of cancer at the age of 51.
The manager, writer and producer passed away at his home in Santa Monica, California, on November 21 surrounded by his loved ones.
His family released a statement announcing the sad news, which read: "Holly loved the ocean, the wilderness, and traveling the world, climbing mountains from Baldy to Kilimanjaro.
"A larger than life character and hilarious story teller, Holly regaled his many friends with epic tales from his myriad adventures. From the plains of the Serengeti to the produce aisle of Whole Foods, Holly was always the hero. He will be remembered by all who knew and loved him as a great thinker, philosopher, and lover of Scotch."
His sister, actress Lauren Holly, posted an emotional message on Instagram too, sharing it wasn't her only recent heartbreak. She wrote: "I’ve lost my father and my brother in the last two weeks. I just want to say out loud how much I loved them. How much I will miss them. Grant. Nick. Dad. Little Brother. Soar. Hold A. Et all."
Among those commenting on her post was Charmed actress Holly Marie Combs, who wrote: "I Love you and them."
Star of 21 Jump Street Holly Robinson Peete also said: "Oh I’m so sorry Lauren—I consider it a blessing to have known you for 40 years. You’ve always been such an amazing person and I’m sending you so much love and condolences right now."

Another penned: "Nick Holly was a nice man. RIP," while a third said: "Oh no-way too young. RIP Nick Holly."
