Stefan Karl Stefansson died yesterday at the age of 43 following a two-year cancer battle.

The LazyTown co-stars of Stefan Karl Stefansson, who played Robbie Rotten, have paid tribute to the actor after he lost his life to cancer.

The sad news was confirmed to TMZ by a family spokesperson.

She also passed on the Stefansson's family's gratitude for the support he received over the years.

It was revealed last night that Stefan Karl will not have a funeral but will instead have his ashes scattered in secret. The show "LazyTown", owned by CNN parent company Turner, followed the adventures of an eight-year-old girl and a superhero on a quest to reform the town residents with exercise and healthy eating.

"Entertaining and making kids laugh is my favorite thing", he wrote on Reddit past year when discussing the show.

"We got confirmed after a trip to Köben in Jáeindaskan that there are new metastases in Stefán that cannot be removed by surgery". However, he said in March that cancer had returned and was inoperable.

In her Facebook post, Thorsteinsdottir thanked friends and fans for their support.

In April 2018, Stefansson chose to cease chemotherapy, and delete his Twitter account.

"It's not until they tell you you're going to die soon that you realise how short life is. And whether you spend it in the arms of a loved one or alone in a prison-cell, life is what you make of it. Dream big".
