    Zach Braff has hailed Nick Cordero’s wife Amanda Kloots as “one of the strongest human beings” he’s ever met following Nick’s death

    The former ‘Scrubs’ star lost one of his closest friends when Broadway star Nick died from complications from coronavirus in July after spending almost 100 days in hospital fighting the illness

    And following Nick’s death, Zach - who is dating Florence Pugh - has heaped praise on his pal’s widow, Amanda, for not “giving up” during her husband’s health battle.

    He said: "Amanda doesn't believe in giving up. She fought with all her might until Nick's last breath. She didn't just sit there and wait to be told what to do by the doctors; she began to research and ask questions and built a global army of supporters. She is one of the strongest human beings I have ever met.”

    Zach - who starred with Nick in ‘Bullets Over Broadway’ in 2014 - also praised Amanda for continuing to be an “incredible mother” to her and Nick’s 16-month-old son Elvis despite the other struggles she has been facing.

    He added: "While Nick was sick, she was taking care of him, researching cures, rallying her online supporters, running multiple businesses and still managing to be an incredible mother to Elvis. Even when she is down, she finds a way to motivate herself to get up and take Elvis on adventures.

    “He’s the sweetest little boy. I finally got my first hand-hold from him the other day. I didn’t wanna ruin it, so I mumbled through gritted teeth, 'Amanda, take my phone out of my pocket and take this picture!'"

    And Amanda also had kind words to say about Zach, 45, who has been “such a good friend” to their family.

    Speaking to People magazine, she said: "He's been such a good friend to Nick and I and Elvis. We are very lucky to have him in our lives.”
