David went on to say that a celebration of life ceremony was set to take place Sunday — this following a funeral service that happened just last Friday. The Rivlin family says they will be holding a small, intimate shiva — a Jewish mourning period — at Laurel’s aunt’s home.

One last thing — David says that Laurel’s school — the public Clinton School in NYC — closed last week for half a day in Laurel’s honor … something he said he didn’t believe had ever happened in the city before.

Laurel Griggs, a 13-year-old actress on the rise with credits that include ‘SNL’ and a Tony Award-winning Broadway actress is dead.

The cause of death is unknown and something of a mystery. She died on November 5 but the death didn’t surface until this weekend. No cause of death was revealed.

Laurel made her Broadway debut in 2013 at age 6 as Polly in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” She’s best known for her role in “Once” opposite Scarlett Johansson … which she performed for 17 months between 2013 and 2015. “Once” also won a Tony.

Laurel made appearances on 2 episodes of ‘SNL’ and also on Amazon’s “Cafe Society” alongside Steve Carell.
