British actress Mya-Lecia Naylor, who starred in popular children’s programs and appeared in the film "Cloud Atlas," died suddenly earlier this month, her agents said. She was 16.
Naylor died April 7 “after she collapsed,” A&J Management said, according to the BBC. Details of her death were not immediately available.
Tributes from her fellow co-stars poured in for Naylor, who also appeared in popular CBBC shows like “Millie Inbetween” and “Almost Never.”
The CBBC said the rising star was “a much-loved part of the BBC Children’s family and a hugely talented actress, singer and dancer.”
