Daniel Escobar Dies
In addition to his recurring role on the Disney Channel series, Escobar reprised his character alongside Hilary Duff in the 2003 Lizzie McGuire movie. Escobar also had a recurring role on the ABC comedy Dharma & Greg as a waiter named Lorenzo.
I am deeply saddened to hear about Daniel Escobar passing. He was a kindhearted, generous person. Rest in Peace.
