LazyTown’s Stefan Karl Stefansson Loses Battle Against Cancer at 43

It’s a sad day for the LazyTown fans all across the world.

The show’s star Stefan Karl Stefansson died on Tuesday following his longtime battle with cancer. Stefansson was only 43 when he passed away.

“My beloved, Stefan Karl Stefansson, 43, has passed away after battling aggressive bile duct cancer for two years,” the star’s wife, Steinunn, said in a statement.

The actor found fame with his role of villain Robbie Rotten on the Nickelodeon children’s series, LazyTown, which debuted in the early 2000. He later gained Internet fame as a meme.

In honor of his contribution to the world of humour, his friend and manager Cheryl Edisson told E! News that The Stefan Karl Academy & Center for the Performing Arts will launch in 2019 in Switzerland, hosted by HIAF Immobilien.

“In fulfillment of Stefan Karl’s wishes, The Academy will be dedicated to training young people in the history and skills of expression across all genres, while the Theater will offer audiences an opportunity to become part of Stefan’s legacy through enjoyment.”
