 December 14, 2023

Camden Toy, known for his work in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," died on Monday at the age of 68.

Toy's passing came following a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, according to his representatives in a press release.

His partner speaks

"He was diagnosed in February last year after months of mysterious pain. For many reasons we were very hopeful for, at least, a longer and more fruitful time on planet Earth," his partner Bethany Henderson wrote on Facebook.

"Even the more recent challenges felt more like a hiccup in progress. Unfortunately, it looks like we've reached the end of the road with the doctor's treatments," she added.

His impact

"Camden was always such a talent and joy to work with,” Gregori J. Martin, producer of “The Bay,” said in a statement from Toy’s obituary.

“It’s no wonder he was a fan favorite on ‘The Bay.’ I am so grateful for the times I got to work with him and will certainly cherish those memories," he continued.

Toy remembered

"To know Camden Toy was to Love Camden Toy. We may have met on the set of ’Buffy' as two hideous looking "Gentlemen," but that only sparked a dear friendship that would continue for twenty-four years," Toy's best friend and former co-star Doug Jones said in his obituary.

He continued, "It's rare to find a man so joyful, smiley, smart, giggly, huggie, good at listening with his heart, and accessible always to anyone he knew, including his many fans. May he rest in God's peace."

In addition to his work in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Toy appeared in the spin-off series "Angel."

He also held a long list of television and film credits, including work in "The Mentalist" and "Monster School Animation." His work also included some writing for television and film.

He is survived by his mother, sister and partner, with a celebration of life event planned in his honor next month. His longtime role in the classic television series left memories with many as they both mourn Toy's loss and celebrate his impact over many years.
