In a very sad bit of news, young “Nanny McPhee” actor Raphael Coleman died on Friday after collapsing on a run. Coleman was just 25 years old and reportedly had no prior history of health problems.
The British actor also starred in the film’s “The Fourth Kind” and “It’s Alive” before leaving the profession to study zoology at the University of Manchester and then dedicating himself to environmental activism with the Extinction Rebellion movement along with advocating for wildlife conservation.
His mother, British author Liz Jensen, confirmed the news over social media saying: “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.”
His stepdad Carsten Jensen wrote in a separate post: “I guess there’s nothing that makes you see death as unfair and meaningless as when a young person dies. It’s life itself that’s sabotaged…I got to know Raph when he was six years old, and we were so close. I will never forget you, we say in a farewell greeting to the dead.”
