Raphael Coleman, who starred in Nanny McPhee, has died at the age of 25.

The former actor’s death was made public by his mother Liz Jensen, who tweeted the following moving statement on Twitter:

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


His stepfather, Carsten Jensen, said on Facebook that Coleman “collapsed without prior health problems” during a trip.

“Raph wasn’t my child, even though I was close to him. But I can feel it myself. I see it in his mother’s eyes, and I hear it in her voice, the irreversible loss of the most precious thing in life,” Jensen wrote in the post.

According to Jensen his stepson had became an active member of the climate activism group Extinction Rebellion under the name Iggy Fox, where he controlled the group’s use of social media, spoke at demonstrations, and was “arrested again and again,” wrote Jensen.

Extinction Rebellion also posted a tribute to Coleman on its website. “You were a true warrior, who tirelessly worked on behalf of others, on behalf of all life,” said the statement. “You had the fire of youth and a wisdom that belied your age. The world has lost one of its fiercest and most dedicated defenders.”

One the last times Coleman was arrested was last August during a protest over deforestation in the Amazon.
