Read Hilary Duff’s tribute to Lizzie McGuire producer Stan Rogow…

“Writing this right now is bringing back so many distant memories of what feels like a completely different lifetime…One where I had absolutely no clue where I was heading or how I was getting there, but where I had that eagerness and blind optimism that accompanies youth and your first opportunities to step up,” Hilary wrote in a message shared on Instagram.

She continued, writing, “You heavily cherish the people who first believe and see something in you, and for me there was a very special person who fought for me to land a role that would change the entire course of my life…and I’m so very sad to hear of his passing today. Stan - thank you for thinking I had ‘that special thing’. Thank you for all of the Lizzie adventures. Thank you for helping create a reality I could never have dreamed of.”

“Thinking of your family and your son Jackson at this time. Rest easy Stan X,” Hilary signed off.

Our thoughts go out to everyone who knew and loved Stan. We hope they find peace at this difficult time. RIP.
