British actor Tim Roth loses son to cancer

Cormac Roth, the musician and son of British actor Tim Roth, has died at the age of 25.

Cormac, who died on October 16 2022, was diagnosed with stage 3 germ cell cancer in November 2021.

A statement by his family described the deceased as a “wild and electric ball of energy”, New York Post reported on Monday.

The statement read, “He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness.

“As wild as he was, Cormac was also the embodiment of kindness. A gentle soul who brought so much happiness and hope to those around him.

“The grief comes in waves, as do the tears and laughter, when we think of that beautiful boy across the 25 years and 10 months that we knew him.

“An irrepressible and joyful and wild and wonderful child. Only recently a man. We love him. We will carry him with us wherever we go.”

In one of Cormac’s last post on his Instagram page, he had detailed his battle with cancer.

The post from July read, “In November of 21, I was diagnosed with stage 3 germ cell cancer. Since then I’ve been fighting it daily, throwing everything I can at it: Chemo, high dose chemo, medication, transplants, transfusions, surgeries etc.

It is called Choriocarcinoma. It is rare, and it has managed to stay many steps ahead of me no matter what I throw at it.

“It has taken away half of my hearing, 60pounds of weight, my confidence, and will continue its murderous path until I can manage to stop it some how, and kill it.

“But it hasn’t taken away my will to survive, or my love of making music. It hasn’t taken me down yet.

“If you or someone you love is effected by cancer, please feel free to reach out for it is an emotional rollercoaster unlike anything else.

“Love to you all please make sure to do the things that you love. Life is short. It is chaos. And you never know when its going to be you. Be well and go to the doctor.”
