Stefan Karl Stefansson (Robbie Rotten, LazyTown) passed away due to bile duct cancer. He was 43.

The Icelandic actor who made the internet jump with joy with "We Are Number One!" from the show's 103rd/penultimate episode has sadly passed.

He was diagnosed with bile duct cancer back in 2016. He and his wife got extra funds for his treatment via GoFundMe established by Mark Valenti, a writer for LazyTown. In March 2018, the cancer was declared inoperable. Back in April 2018, he posted one final message to fans that he discontinued chemotherapy and went off grid.

Before, and during the existence of LazyTown, Stefan has been a theater actor for more than a decade.

You are the number one, Stefan.

I never watched the TV show, but I've really enjoyed seeing his work after the fact on like tumblr and stuff. The guy seemed amazing.

Lazy Town was great. The fact that it had maximum meme potential from 2005 until now really says a lot about it.
