Archie Lyndhurst’s mum has spoken out following his death earlier this year aged 19.
CBBC star Archie, also the son of Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst, was found dead at his family home in Fulham on September 22.
Lucy Lyndhurst penned a heart-breaking tribute to her son on Instagram ahead of his memorial on Monday, asking people to ‘light a candle’ in his memory.
She shared that they ‘still have no answer as to what happened’.
Along with photos of Archie with his parents, Lucy wrote: ‘The pain of our loss is beyond anything we have ever felt before, and wouldn’t wish upon anyone. Archie was and remains our absolute world.
‘He was the beautiful extraordinary human being we have ever known. To have him as our son has been nothing but an utter joy and honour.
‘Tonight at 6pm Nick and I shall be with him in a tiny chapel to send him on the first part of his next journey. If you get a moment maybe you’d like to light a candle or take a minute just to remember him.
‘We’ve never known anyone anyone live like Archie. He cherished and absorbed every moment he had. Until we meet again our darling magical boy. We will love you forever and ever and will be forever grateful for choosing us to be your parents.
‘We were beyond lucky. Thank you for every smile, hug, laugh, conversation we loved them all. Your kindness and generosity knew no bounds. You were the best teacher we ever had. We miss you every minute of everyday. As you would say my darling. “In a bizzle”. “ Love You.’
Nicholas, 59, and Lucy have been married for 21 years.
He had followed in his father’s footsteps into acting, starring as Ollie in CBBC series So Awkward; its sixth series began in August.
He also had credits on Casualty and played a young version of Jack Whitehall’s character in Bad Education.
Archie was believed to be in a relationship with his So Awkward castmate Nethra Tilakumara at the time of his death, with the couple celebrating their one-year anniversary in April.
His final Instagram post came in June, when he posted a black square in solidarity with Blackout Tuesday and the Black Lives Matter Movement.
Nicholas at the time said he and Lucy were ‘utterly grief stricken’.
