News of Amanda’s passing broke on July 6 after her body was discovered on July 5, and stars like Sarah Michelle Gellar and Neil Patrick Harris reacted to the news via Twitter. On July 7, Patrick contributed with a beautiful message for his late co-star, saying, “In my memory, she will always be vibrant and young. Gone too soon. Sending my thoughts and prayers to Amanda’s family.” We don’t think he could’ve given a nicer tribute.
In my memory, she will always be vibrant and young. Gone too soon. Sending my thoughts and prayers to Amanda’s family.

Despite his touching tweet, Patrick didn’t take the news lightly. Daily Mail posted pictures of the actor from July 7 after he heard about Amanda’s death, and he looks extremely distraught with slumped shoulders and a sad expression. His reaction is completely understandable, as Amanda’s death was a big surprise to all.
Amanda’s cause of death has yet to be determined, but according to what her father told TMZ, she had issues with sleep apnea and some illness that may have contributed to her sudden passing. She also reportedly suffered from pneumonia and sinusitis that was allegedly caused by mold in her former home. Even more sad, she left behind a husband and two children.
Our thoughts remain with Amanda’s family and friends, and we hope to see Patrick pull through this difficult time.
