Raphael Coleman, the former child star known for his role in the 2005 film Nanny McPhee, has died at 25.
Coleman reportedly died suddenly on Friday after collapsing during a run. His mother and stepfather confirmed the news on social media.
His mother confirmed the news via her twitter page.
She wrote: “Rest in peace my beloved son Raphael Coleman, aka Iggy Fox,
He died doing what he loved, working for the noblest cause of all. His family could not be prouder. Let’s celebrate all he achieved in his short life and cherish his legacy.”
Jensen also shared a link to an essay Coleman wrote for Extinction Rebellion, an activist organization dedicated predominantly to the climate change crisis.
Coleman had studied zoology at the University of Manchester but recently dropped his pursuit of a career in the sciences to be an activist full-time.
The essay now bears a notation of Coleman’s death and a memorial to his efforts at its header.
It reads: “James ‘Iggy’ Fox died on 6 February. He was 25, had given up a career in science to join XR and fought hard for the cause, especially for Indigenous rights. Iggy was a burning bright soul and he will be deeply missed by us all.”
