Actor Archie Lyndhurst's Cause of Death Revealed After He Passed Away at 19

The family of British actor Archie Lyndhurst is speaking out after he tragically died at the age of 19 back in September 2020.

The young actor, best known for his role in the CBBC series So Awkward, was also the son of actor Nicholas Lyndhurst.

In a statement on her Instagram account, Archie‘s mom Lucy revealed that he died in his sleep on September 22 and she revealed the cause of death.

“On the 22nd September our world blew apart, the damage caused to it totally irreparable. Archie was, and always will remain our everything. Those of you who know us know the catastrophic effect it has had, and will have on us for the rest of our days. Archie was the most extraordinary magical human being we have ever met,” Lucy began her letter. “We are still learning each day the incredible impact he had on others lives, the kindness and generosity he showed them. He was an old soul and incredibly advanced for his years in many ways. As his parents we couldn’t be prouder of him for all he achieved in the short time he was given, and especially for the beautiful human being he was. We are so grateful and privileged to have been chosen to be his parents.”

Lucy then revealed that Archie died from a brain hemorrhage caused by acute lymphoblastic leukemia, which is “a rare cancer of the blood cells.”

She wrote, “He died from an Intracerebral Haemorrhage caused by Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma/Leukaemia. This is not Leukaemia as we know it, the word Acute in medical terms means rapid. He assured us that there wasn’t anything anyone could have done as Archie showed no signs of illness. Archie had numerous bleeds on the brain and the Dr went to great lengths to reassure us that he wouldn’t have been in any pain as it happened in his sleep. The results utterly floored us to think something like this could happen. It’s very rare and around only 800 people a year die from it.”

“To lose a child is every parents nightmare and I wouldn’t wish this pain on anyone. My heart goes out to any other parents what have had to experience this,” she said. “Nick and I try each day to make Archie proud, but it’s baby steps, beyond hard and a struggle at times. The world is a very different place without him. One of my last conversations with him was about all that was going on in the world, the chaos, anger about all different subjects. He looked at me with his huge blue soulful eyes, shook his head and said ‘All the world need is love Mama, it’s so easy to love.’ And to him it was. He gave it wherever he went in abundance.”
