Mya-Lecia Naylor, the British child star who starred on TV's "Absolutely Fabulous", "Millie Inbetween" and "Almost Never" and in the film Cloud Atlas has died, the CBBC announced Wednesday.

She was 16.

"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," the CBBC said in its statement.⁣

"We know this news is very upsetting, and it may help to share how you are feeling with friends or a trusted adult. If you are struggling and there is no one you feel you can talk to about it, you can call @Childline_official on 0800 11 11.⁣ ⁣ You can also find an online condolence book on the CBBC website."

BBC News has reported that Naylor's agents at A&J Management said she died on April 7 after she collapsed, but that the cause of death is not yet known.

The agency told the BBC that Naylor was "hugely talented and a big part of A&J."

Naylor rose to fame in her debut as Safi's daughter, Jane, on "Absolutely Fabulous" and seven years later played the title role on the television series "Tati's Hotel".

She worked steadily since then, appearing in film roles in Cloud Atlas, Code Red and Index Zero, as well as playing Fran on two seasons of "Miliie Inbetween" and Mya on "Almost Never".
