Actor Archie Lyndhurst From So Awkward Passes Away At 19
Archie Lyndhurst, 19, who was best known for his role on So Awkward, has passed away, a new report from Fox News revealed today. Archie’s parents were reportedly Nicholas Lyndhurst and Lucy Smith.
The CBBC announced the news of his death this weekend, claiming he would be sorely missed by everyone who worked with him during his time on the show. The Lyndhurst family also submitted a statement to the BBC claiming they were “deeply saddened”.
During his time as an actor, Archie also sang for the game Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensaward and worked with Jack Whitehall on the BBC series Bad Education.
Jack Whitehall praised him on a Twitter post, saying he was one of the most passionate and friendliest people to work with. The actor went on to say that if Archie had lived he would undoubtedly have continued to find work and enjoyed an illustrious career.
Several of the actor’s co-stars also called out to him, including Cleo Demetriou, who claimed she was broken to write the tweet about his death.
It is not yet clear what led to Archie’s death. This wouldn’t be the first time a young star has passed away in the past year and a half. Last year Adam Sandler came out to commemorate the death of Cameron Boyce, whom he worked with on the set of Grown Ups.
Cameron, the Disney Channel alum, died of epilepsy. In a statement released by his parents, the family claimed that he was the type who would never complain about his condition and that he only wanted to do good for the world.
The Chicago Tribune reported at the time of his death that he died of “natural causes”. When he was only 9 years old, he first appeared in a film alongside Kiefer Sutherland, Mirrors. While at Adam Sandler, Cameron starred in grown-ups, the original, and the sequel.
However, he first received recognition for his role as Luke Ross on the Disney Channel show Jessie.
