Raphael Coleman, famously known for his role in Nanny McPhee and his work as an activist, has died, reports CNN. He was 25 years old.

"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 mother and novelist, Liz Jensen shared on Twitter.

His stepfather said on Facebook that he died on Friday after he collapsed without prior health problems in the middle of a trip.

He was reportedly in South Africa when he died from apparent heart failure. The 25-year-old was on his mission to take on poaching in the country and the rest of the continent.
