Paul Bhattacharjee missing: EastEnders actor's body found near cliffs on coast


The body of an actor who starred in EastEnders and Casino Royale has been found a week after he disappeared.

53-year-old Paul Bhattacharjee had last been seen leaving rehearsals at the Royal Court Theatre in London last Wednesday evening.

The actor - who also used the name Gautam Paul Bhattacharjee - later sent a text to his girlfriend but had not been heard from since.

The hunt for Mr Bhattercharjee spread across Twitter yesterday with Stephen Fry and Kim Cattrall among hundreds who expressed concern.

Sussex Police today told their Met Police counterparts that the body of a man matching Mr Bhattercharjee's description had been found near cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, on Friday.

Mr Bhattacharjee, from Redbridge, north-east London, was formally identified today and his next of kin have been informed.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The actor, who also appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, White Teeth and Dirty Pretty Things, had been due to appear in this week's play Talk Show at the Royal Court.

His role in the play, which began last night, was recast.

He played a doctor in Casino Royale in 2006 and was in several episodes of EastEnders as Inzamam between 2008 and 2010. Other television credits for the actor included Waking the Dead, Spooks and The Bill.

Last year he appeared as Benedick opposite Meera Syal in an Royal Shakespeare Company production of Much Ado about Nothing.


They say Hollywood deaths come in threes... here's to hoping that's just a legend :(
