Despite the fact that Pilcher was vaccinated, his colleague Nicola Coughlan (pictured with Regé-Jean Page), tweeted:

“It’s a tragedy that he’s been taken so young when he had so much yet to do. Please also use this as a reminder that Covid is still a very real and present danger, please get vaccinated and mask up to protect yourself and others.”
