Death of teen television star Mya-Lecia Naylor at the age of 16 has been confirmed as a suicide, the coroner said today.
The CBBC actress was taken to hospital after her mother, Zena Beggs, 46, found her in a tent at their home in South Norwod, South London but was pronounced dead shortly after.
Mya-Lecia Naylor, who passed away on April 7, was scheduled to sit for the GCSE exams this summer but her parents informed her by phone that the grades of teenagers were lower than expected.
Following reports, the deceased was prohibited from leaving the house or attending a party even the night before his death, the girl was able to watch a movie with her family which also featured a suicide scene.
Mya-Lecia is among the cast of staring children, Almost Never with Emily Attack, Fleur East and Tess Daly.
The multi-talented teenager also plays Fran in the CBBC series Millie In between, telling of a girl having to deal with her parents’ divorce.
She also appeared in the 2012 movie starring actor Tom Hanks in the film Cloud Atlas, starring Nero and actress Jennifer Saunders for the 2004 comedy Absolutely Fabulous.
The deceased’s father, Martin Naylor, told the South London Coroner’s Court that his daughter behaved rather strangely as she was subjected to examination.
Investigators’ review of the contents of Mya-Lecia’s social site did not find anything suspicious, indicating that she planned to commit suicide or be under pressure.
