Resident Bolde

Reading the UK Daily Mail article on Hannah Yard’s experience of being called “blondie” for a week and told that she needed to die her hair brunette to be taken seriously, gave me flashbacks to my experience of being a blonde in surgical residency. In turn, I am dedicating an entire blog as an ode […]

[metro-video id=”1907926″] Mya-Lecia Naylor’s first starring role came when she was just two years old. The CBBC star has tragically died at the age of just 16, it was confirmed yesterday. In the wake of the teenager’s passing, fans and colleagues have been remembering Mya-Lecia from her roles on Millie Inbetween and Almost Never. However, her TV career began when she was just a toddler. In 2004, Mya-Lecia played Saffy’s daughter Jane (or Lola, if you asked Edina) on Absolutely Fabulous. Mya was just one when she played Saffy’s daughter Jane (Picture: BBC) Mya-Lecia has sadly died aged 16 (Picture: CBBC) The two-year-old shared scenes with Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley and Julia Sawalha on the classic sitcom. Mya-Lecia told Tresa magazine: ‘The first thing I did on TV was Absolutely Fabulous but I was only two at the time so I don’t really remember much about it. ‘I was only filming for about a day and it was a Christmas special so from what my mum tells me, we all got around on Christmas Day and watched it.’ Mya-Lecia’s next role was in Tati’s Hotel as the leading character, before she landed episodes of Cartoonito Tales and The Last Weekend. Her big screen debut came with the role of Miro in 2012’s Cloud Atlas, starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, while she also appeared in Code Red and Index Zero. However, fans will best know Mya-Lecia for her role as Fran in Millie Inbetween, which ran from 2014 until 2018, and Mya in the new series Almost Never. Mya-Lecia was starring on Almost Never (Picture: BBC / Simon Rodgers) The CBBC confirmed Mya-Lecia’s shock passing on 7 April in a statement reading: ‘We are so sorry to have to tell you that Mya-Lecia, who you will know from Millie Inbetween and Almost Never, has very sadly died. ‘Mya-Lecia was a much loved part of the BBC Children’s family, and a hugely talented actress, singer and dancer. We will miss her enormously and we are sure that you will want to join us in sending all our love to her family and friends. ‘We know this news is very upsetting, and it may help to share how you are feeling with friends or a trusted adult. If you are struggling and there is no one you feel you can talk to about it, you can call @Childline_official on 0800 11 11.⁣You can also find an online condolence book on the CBBC website.’ [metro-tag-post-strip] Mya-Lecia’s Almost Never co-star Emily Atack paid tribute, writing on Instagram: ‘So shocked and sad to hear about lovely Mya-Lecia Naylor. She was a beautiful and talented girl. A complete joy to be around on the set of Almost Never. Sending all my love to her family & friends. Rest in peace beautiful girl.’ Game Of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel has also shared her condolences. The actress’s cause of death has not yet been disclosed.

Jennifer played Eddie in the iconic sitcom (Pictures: Rex Features) We’ve had an Absolutely Fabulous film and now it looks like there might be a musical, as star and writer of the sitcom Jennifer Saunders has said she wanted to write a gender-blind version for the stage. Jennifer, who played PR guru Edina Monsoon on the show, once revealed that she considered killing off her character and her best friend and enabler Patsy Stone (played by Joanna Lumley) but now seems to have had a complete change of heart and wants to give the characters a new life. Speaking to The Daily Star, the comedian said she wasn’t bothered whether Patsy and Eddie were played by women or any other gender: ‘I’d quite like to write something along that vein that anybody could then play it, so you could have whatever sex or gender as Edina and Patsy.’ We couldn’t be more on board. The songs in Ab Fab the musical would be hilarious (Photo: Rex Features) Jennifer is also working on a cartoon version of the Ab Fab world, which will play out as a prequel to Eddie and Patsy’s most hedonistic days and has been described by the writer as St Trininian’s-esque. Her co-star Joanna Lumley is glad the characters weren’t killed off and ‘buried’ as Jennifer suggested, as she played a big part in keeping the pair alive and drinking. ‘I wrote back the fastest email return I’ve ever written back,’ said the actor. ‘No, we’ve promised the world we will never die!’ [metro-tag-post-strip] We’re quite surprised good old Patsy and Eddie even made it past the first series considering the amount of Bolly they managed to glug down every episode, but we’re extremely glad they did. There’s no news on whether Jennifer is actually set to work on the musical, but if she needs help with casting, we’re more than happy to help. Ezra Miller could definitely pull off a Gaultier caftan.
