Archie Lyndhurst girlfriend shares touching tribute
Nethra shared her tribute on her Instagram page, writing: “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.”

She 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.
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world.
“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.”
Finally, Nethra ends her moving post saying: “You have my heart forever. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world.”

One wrote: “My heart goes out to you.”
Another added: “My condolences to you on your loss. ‘Do not weep for those who have found Death’s embrace early, for they weep for us that linger on in this mortal world of pain.'”

In an interview with TresA, Nethra described her first days on set: “Archie Lyndhurst who plays Ollie locked me in my green room on my first day as a joke, so definitely cast bonding at its finest.”
Archie Lyndhurst was the only son of actor Nicholas Lyndhurst and his wife Lucy.
The pair married in Chichester in West Sussex in 1999, and welcomed Archie in 2000.
