Sudden Death

It was announced that Mya-Lecia passed after collapsing. There are no further details released. The cause of death still seems unclear.

In a statement, Alice Webb the director at BBC Children’s stated,

“We are distraught and so terribly sad to hear the news about Mya. She has shone so brightly on our screens, both in Millie Inbetween and Almost Never, and it’s unthinkable that she won’t be part of our journey going forward. She was hugely popular with our audience, a very talented actress, dancer and singer, and a real role model for her young fans.”

Grieving Friends and Family

When the news of her death announced last Wednesday, April seventeenth, her former co-stars have spoken out about their sadness towards the loss of a friend and a co-worker.

Emily Atack, star of ‘I’m a celebrity… get me out of here’ wrote on Instagram that she was shocked and sad to hear that Mya-Lecia had passed.

“She was a beautiful and talented girl.  A complete joy to be around on the set of Almost Never. Sending all my love to her family & friends. Rest in peace beautiful girl.”

The Almost Never Instagram account posted a photo of the beautiful young star along with a caption,
