Musician Cormac Roth - the son of actor Tim Roth - has died aged 25.

He passed away on 16 October following a cancer diagnosis, his family announced today (Monday 31 October).

"He was a wild and electric ball of energy and his spirit was filled with light and goodness,” his family said in a statement, as per Variety.

"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."

His family said he was the 'embodiment of kindness'.

Cormac announced in the summer that he had been diagnosed with Stage 3 germ cell cancer in November 2021.

"Since then I've been fighting it daily, throwing everything I can at it," he wrote. "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, 60 pounds of weight, my confidence."

He continued: "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 it's going to be you.

"Be well and go to the doctor.

"F**k cancer."

His last post was a video shared in August, in which he thanked his followers for their support.

"You don't always get to choose your destiny," he said. "You don't always get to choose your future."

His family said he was 'an exceptionally gifted and extraordinary musician whose passion and love for making music stretched back to when his guitar was bigger than he was.' They added: "In Cormac's words: 'Make sure you do the things you love.'"

Along with father Tim, he is survived by his mum, Nikki Butler, and brother, Hunter Roth.
