Broadway Actress Royana Black Dies At 47



Hollywood actress, Royana Black, who starred in Broadway’s Brighton Beach Memoirs, is dead.

Black died at the age of 47 in Los Angeles after battling with Myeloid Leukemia.

Her family announced her death on Tuesday, July 28, describing her death as a sudden one.

“We are shocked by the outpouring of support from friends and fans.

“Royana Black had an infectious smile and laugh which could light even the the darkest of days. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was truly an angel on earth,” the statement read in part.

Black grew up in New York state and, at age 10, she played Laurie, the cousin of main character Eugene, in Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs” on Broadway, Deadline noted.

Royana worked alongside Matthew Broderick on the Broadway play and held the role for 10 years.

A few years later she landed the teen daughter role of Miranda Marshak on “Raising Miranda,” in which her character and on-screen father (James Naughton) learn to cope after her mother leaves them.
