Rising actor Aaron Eaton dead at 29

Just days after his film Brotherhood was released Aaron was found dead in his London home.

Aaron, who lived with his mother and younger brother in New Addington, was nominated for the best actor prize at the International Achievement Recognition awards.

'Rest in flawless peace my bro. I am trying to raise a bit of money to help with his funeral expenses, what ever we can give to his lovely family at this hard time!

Stormzy, real name Michael Omari, wrote on Twitter: "This one has hit home I can't lie".

Friends gathered in south London to pay tribute to Aaron, who is also known as Yogie, on Wednesday.

Many returned to the street yesterday, congregating around a memorial of candles and flowers that had sprung up by the side of the road.

It is not yet clear how Mr Eaton died.

"You really really do not know what people are going through serious".

Brotherhood's director Noel also sent a message, saying: "RIP Aaron".

"You had a kind heart and so many people will be broken by this, rest up my bro". Prayers to your family'.

Aaron played the character Teardrop in the latest instalment to follow Noel's earlier films Kidulthood and Adulthood.

Friend Sarah Taylor said she was in "complete shock" about the actor's "sudden death".

Our deepest condolences to all who knew him. He was a loving and caring person with such a good soul.

A third shared: "Rest in eternal peace my brother".

In a video posted to Facebook yesterday morning, Romero Stewart warned against others asking too many questions about the circumstances of his friend's death. I told you to keep strong that you're nearly there.

Also mourning the loss of the young father was the grime and hip hop artist Stormzy, a childhood friend of Mr Eaton's.
