The actress went on Instagram to share a sentimental snap from one of their scenes together, penning a touching tribute in the caption, writing:

The New York native also reflected on her favorite things about her former costar, adding:
"We will always remember the week we shared with him, his playful smile, his easy instincts and how much he made us laugh even when we had to stay up all night in the woods. We are sending love to his family and friends and feeling such gratitude for his gifts. RIP sweet Nick."
