TikTok influencer and Club Rat comedy show creator Eva Evans dies at 29

Eva Evans, the 29 year old writer and creator of hit Amazon Prime series Club Rat has died at just 29, her sister announced on social media. Lila Joy posted a photograph of her influencer sibling on Instagram on Sunday, 21 April, and included a heartbreaking message that read: “Yesterday my family received news that our sweet, fabulous, creative, caring, hilarious Eva, my beautiful sister, has died.

“After 24 hours, i still find myself in a constant cycle of denial and acceptance, so i know how unbelievable and hard to process this news will be.”

Eva’s five-part comedy show, Club Rat, premiered on Amazon Prime Video in 2023, and featured her playing an influencer in New York City (which was her actual job) in the aftermath of a viral breakup video of herself that was leaked.

Her sister Lila said the family were planning to hold a celebration of life for Eva tomorrow (Tuesday, 23 April) in her native Manhattan district of New York. Her post was quickly flooded with comments expressing shock and disbelief, including one from actress Julia Fox, who wrote: “I literally can’t believe this”.

Author Suzy Welch added: “The loss is unfathomable, to those of us lucky enough to have known her brilliance and goodness, but also to the world, which is not the place it was meant to be without her. Godspeed, Lila, and love.”

Shortly after her initial post, Eva’s sister Lila added another one, saying the family had received an “overwhelming response regarding Eva’s celebration of life”, and planned to hold a service at Grace Church in downtown Manhattan.

“We would like to extend an invitation to include anyone who loved Eva; your presence would mean so much to her and us.” She said the dress code would be “anything f*****g fabulous, but no pressure. All dark colours”, and said the family would later hold a more intimate gathering for Eva’s closest friends.

Commenting further on the post, one devastated follower wrote: “I followed your sister on TT at a time where sm was my only escape from the horrors of the world, she truly was a beacon of light, in some way I felt indebted to her for that. She will always be loved and remembered”. Another added: “Love this girl and all you girls. I’m so sorry.”

Eva’s cause of death has not been made public, and her latest social media post came just a few days before her death, and showed her sitting on a New York subway train. She captioned it: “Today, I discovered that there’s no Yankees emoji? I’ve heard people try to claim that NYC isn’t the center of the universe before, but I just wasn’t expecting this. Do better @apple.”

Reality star Lo Bosworth, who appeared in reality show The Hills, offered her condolences on the post, writing: “Rest in peace, angel Eva. you were always kind to me when others couldn’t be bothered. Will never forget that kindness,” followed by a red heart emoji.
