Archie Lyndhurst’s girlfriend Nethra Tilakumara has shared a heartbreaking post to mark what would have been the actor’s 20th birthday.
The So Awkward star, who was the son of Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst, died last week at the age of 19.
In honour of Archie’s 20th birthday, Nethra led tributes for the actor with a heartbreaking social media post.
Alongside a photo of them cuddling, the actress wrote: ‘20 incredible years, Happy Birthday to you X.’
She added: ‘I was so excited for you to turn 20, because I think that’s when we all start to become the people we’re going to be.
‘But you were already there. I just wanted you to experience the magic of it. You are the magic.
‘Happy 20th Birthday. I know you will have a Porn Star Martini and Bellini in each hand… and so will we X.’
Nethra had earlier remembered her boyfriend with a heartfelt post thanking him for making her ‘the luckiest girl in the world’.
She continued: ‘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.’
Nethra, who also appeared on So Awkward, continued: ‘Blissfully unaware, I had no idea my future was sitting right in front of me.
‘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.’
Archie’s death is not being treated as suspicious and an inquest is set to take place next week.
