There are no words and yet so many things I want to say, I don't believe I'll ever be able to articulate exactly what I feel but... Naya, you were a ⚡️ force and everyone who got to be around you knew it and felt the light and joy you exuded when you walked into a room,’ she wrote alongside a heartwarming photo of the pair.

You shined on stage and screen and radiated with love behind closed doors.

‘I was lucky enough to share so many laughs, martinis and secrets with you. I can not believe I took for granted that you'd always be here. Our friendship went in waves as life happens and we grow, so I will not look back and regret but know I love you and promise to help the legacy of your talent, humor, light and loyalty live on.

‘You are so loved. You deserved the world and we will make sure Josey and your family feel that everyday. I miss you already’.

Congratulations to Jenna and David on their lovely news.
