She was a part of the cast forThe Witcher as a young Triss Merigold. Very sad news
Not even old enough to drink, have had a family, owned a car, graduate college, seen the next two to three generations grow up
Not even old enough to have experienced what life has to offer
Pretty sudden, what was the cause?
No one really knows, she died after collapsing.
Could be an unknown heart defect, among other things. Real tragic stuff.
I found it especially sad that, since she was in a kids show on the BBC's childrens channel CBBC, the channel had to announce her death, and they put up a tribute page which is full of sad comments from heartbroken children
Aw man, she was a rising star
We had a lad about her age undergo a similar thing back in my youth volunteer group. Went out for lunch, came back, fit as a fiddle, then said he felt really faint, collapsed and then we learned that he'd died in the hospital not three hours later. As I recall, it was some kind of heart condition. I'd be surprised to learn that wasn't a similar case here.
Damn young, though. I can't imagine what her family must be going through.
There's something called sudden adult death syndrome or something that tends to be due to some heart defect. I suppose we'll find out what happened after the autopsy.
A guy from our soccer team rode on his bike home, had a heart attack and died. He was 18. That sucked so much and made us realize that you can just die at any moment. So sad when a young person dies so randomly
16 is barely the start of adult life (atleast in US where it's not necessary to grow up and be a mature adult when you are three). Dying after such a short quantity of living is most assuredly extremely unfair and generally outrageous.
