A Broadway starlet who worked with Scarlett Johansson, among other Hollywood names, has died at the age of 13.

Laurel Griggs, who had been acting since the age of six, died on Tuesday, according to her obituary on Dignity Memorial. A funeral service was held on Friday.

No cause of death has been revealed. Newsweek has contacted a representative for Griggs for comment.

Griggs made her Broadway debut as Polly in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof in 2013 alongside Johansson before becoming the longest-running performer to play Ivanka in the Tony Award-winning musical Once, according to her IMDb page.

She has also appeared in 2016's Café Society starring Steve Carrell, Louis C.K.'s series Louie and on NBC's Saturday Night Live. Following an appearance on the sketch show, Griggs wrote on her Instagram page that it was the "most amazing night of my life."

Griggs lived in New York City with her parents and her dog McCloud, according to her IMDb biography. She loved playing with her friends, listening to music, reading, swimming, singing, ice skating and watching films and television.

Tributes have poured in for the young actress after news of her untimely death surfaced.

BizParentz Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports child performers, wrote in a Facebook post: "Our hearts are broken for the family and friends of Laurel Griggs. We wish them peace and love."

Others took to Griggs' page on Dignity Memorial to share tributes and memories of Griggs.

"From her first audition, I could tell she had something special to give the world," Jessica Threet, who said she directed Griggs in two school plays last year, wrote.

"She had such a bright light shining from her. She was kind to everyone, hard working, and just a pleasure to be around. She really could light up a room whenever she walked in."

Jennifer Foler added: "Isabella & I have known you and your family since you were both 2 years old in music class. Right away, you were drawn to each other like kindred spirits. When you reunited in PS 40, it was meant to be."

She added: "Isabella and you are two peas in the pod. You've created traditions that Isabella will remember for a lifetime. You are so accomplished, talented and beautiful."

Lola Horowitz added that she met Griggs at their theater school and they became good friends. "She cared for everyone and had the most amazing laugh," she said. "Her happy and cheerful personality would fill up a room."
