Vicar of Dibley actress Emma Chambers dies aged 53

Actors Dawn French and Hugh Grant have led tributes to their former co-star Emma Chambers, who has died aged 53.

Known for playing Alice Tinker in The Vicar of Dibley, Doncaster-born Chambers also had roles in Notting Hill and a Martin Chuzzlewit adaptation.

Chambers died from natural causes on Wednesday evening and would be “greatly missed”, her agent John Grant said.

“Emma created a wealth of characters and an immense body of work,” he added.

She leaves a husband, fellow actor Ian Dunn.

French, who starred in The Vicar of Dibley alongside Chambers for 13 years, paid tribute to a “very bright spark and the most loyal and loving friend anyone could wish for”.

“I will miss her very much”, she said, while also posting a picture of the pair on Twitter.

Notting Hill star Hugh Grant, who played the older brother of Chambers’ character Honey in the 1999 film, spoke of his sadness following the news, adding: “She brought laughter and joy to many.”

Other well-wishers included Emma Freud, the partner of Richard Curtis, who created both the film and the TV comedy.
