‘Nanny McPhee’ Child Actor Raphaël Coleman Dead at 25

Raphaël Coleman has passed away.

Over the weekend, stepfather Carsten Jensen confirmed that the “Nanny McPhee” actor — also known as Iggy Fox — died last Friday after collapsing during a jog.

“He collapsed without prior health problems in the middle of a trip and could not be restored,” Carsten wrote on Facebook. “I got to know Raph when he was 6 years old, and we were so close.”

Mother Liz Jensen also confirmed Coleman’s passing, and tweeted a link to Extinction Rebellion — a global environmental movement that Raphaël was involved with.

“Rest in peace my beloved son Raphael Coleman, aka Iggy Fox. He died doing what he loved, working for the noblest cause of all,” Liz exclaimed. “His family could not be prouder. Let’s celebrate all he achieved in his short life and cherish his legacy.”

According to the article posted on Extinction Rebellion’s website, Coleman and six others were arrested at London’s Brazilian embassy “for taking non-violent direct action to highlight an ecological and human rights emergency.”

Aside from the 2005 British-American comedy fantasy film, Coleman also appeared in the 2009 horror film “It’s Alive.”

He will be missed.
