The 13-year-old reportedly passed away on November 5 and was laid to rest three days later, according to her Dignity Memorialpage. My lovely and talented granddaughter, Laurel Griggs, has passed away suddenly from a massive asthma attack.
Laurel Griggs, who acted in Broadway's "ONCE the Musical" as Ivanka, has passed away at the age of13.
Griggs also starred as Ivanka in the musical, Once, and has appeared twice on Saturday Night Live in 2017 in James Franco and Kumail Nanjiani episodes. According to her dad, she suffered the same attack just three years ago.
Fellow cast members took to social media in the wake of her death to remember the "sweet" young actress. She is also best known for her role in "ONCE" opposite Scarlett Johansson which she performed for 17 months between 2013 and 2015. Along with Steve Carell, Kristen Stewart and others, she appeared in the 2016 romantic comedy, "Café Society". Within two hours of the attack, Laurel went into cardiac arrest and died.
Other child actress Eliza Holland Madore, who also played Ivanka during performances of Once, posted a picture and a tribute to Laurel Griggs over the weekend, including a photo of the two girls in their youth. The fans of the young and talented actress are deeply saddened by her sudden demise. When he would tell her to relax and assure her that she knew her parts well, he recalls her saying, "Daddy, not many people get a chance like this".
