In a tragic bit of news, actress Mya-Lecia Naylor has passed away at the incredibly young age of 16. The actress is slated to appear in Netflix's The Witcher so it's a real shame to hear about her death since she clearly had a long career ahead of her. The actress was also known for her CBBC roles like Millie in Between and Almost Never.

Here is the full message from the CBBC:

We are so sorry to have to tell you that Mya-Lecia, who you will know from "Millie Inbetween" and "Almost Never", has very sadly died. Mya-Lecia was a much loved part of the BBC Children's family, and a hugely talented actress, singer and dancer. We will miss her enormously and we are sure that you will want to join us in sending all our love to her family and friends.

No details on the actor's death was given, aside from the fact that she suddenly collapsed one day and passed away soon after. We can probably expect more details to come as the days and weeks come along. Whether you were familiar with her or not, knowing that someone this young has died is just tragic and we can only offer our sincere condolences to her friends and family.
