Archie Lyndhurst’s mum says son died from rare ‘brain haemorrhage’ in emotional post

Archie Lyndhurst’s mum Lucy took to Instagram and revealed her son had died as a result of a brain haemorrhage, just days after the inquest into his death was dropped. Nicholas Lyndhurst’s wife shared a series of photos of her son as she talked about his cause of death in a heartbreaking post.

Archie was tragically found dead at his family home in West London in September.

He had starred in the hit CBBC show So Awkward as Ollie Coulton and was dating his co-star Nethra Tilakumara.

Lucy revealed the CBBC actor had died in his sleep after an intracerebral haemorrhage caused by acute lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukaemia.

It is a rare brain condition and Lucy explained it affects around 800 people a year.

In a lengthy post, she wrote: “He died from an Intracerebral Haemorrhage caused by Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma/Leukaemia.

“This is not Leukaemia as we know it, the word Acute in medical terms means rapid.

“He assured us that there wasn’t anything anyone could have done as Archie showed no signs of illness.

She continued: “Archie had numerous bleeds on the brain and the Dr went to great lengths to reassure us that he wouldn’t have been in any pain as it happened in his sleep.

She wrote: “My heart goes out to any other parents who have had to experience this. Nick and I try each day to make Archie proud, but it’s baby steps, beyond hard and a struggle at times.

“The world is a very different place without him.”

Lucy continued: “One of my last conversations with him was about all that was going on in the world, the chaos, anger about all different subjects.

“He looked at me with his huge blue soulful eyes, shook his head, and said, ‘All the world needs is love mama, it’s so easy to love.'”
