Archie Lyndhurst ‘s heartbroken girlfriend said she’ll love him forever in an emotional tribute.
Nethra Tilakumara, who met Archie – son of Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst – while they were at the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London, has been left devastated by his death.
The 19-year-old, who starred alongside his girlfriend in CBBC series So Awkward, was found dead at his London home last week.
Sharing a candid snap of Archie lying on a bed and pointing a camera at her, Nethra penned: “There was once a boy named Archie Lyndhurst and he made me the happiest girl in the whole wide world. A boy in a white beanie with his skateboard, swaggered through two wooden doors with an unimaginable lust for life down the hallway of Sylvia Young Theatre School. He sat across from me while my head was buried in a script, trying to book a job. He was there for his friend who was really nervous and auditioning too, he was always there for his friends.
“Blissfully unaware, I had no idea my future was sitting right in front of me.”
She added: “Boyfriend doesn’t do it justice. Archie you were my Person and Best friend all in one. To spend the rest of my life laughing and going on adventures with you, was just it for me. Everything made sense with you. You made me laugh like no one else and you loved me in such a way that I will forever just be grateful for.
“Being loved by you was a bonus, but I can proudly say you are the most incredible person that I have ever met and had the pleasure of being in love with. The world isn’t ready for what’s yet to come. You talented, beautiful soul, thank you for a lifetime I will never forget.
“You have my heart forever. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world.
“Every day with you was the best day ever, because I finally met my match.
“I love you. Forever and Always, Your Tiny Dancer X”
Her followers rushed to support her.
“Sending all my love,” one commented.
While another posted: “So sorry…”
The circumstances of Archie’s death on September 22 are not yet known, but are said to be “non-suspicious”.
