The body of EastEnders actor Paul Bhattacharjee was found last week, after a two-day disappearance. He was found at Splash Point cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex. Yesterday (Wednesday, June 17th) the body was finally identified as belonging to the 53-year-old actor. His next of kin have been notified and the death isn’t being treated as suspicious. Bhattacharjee was last seen leaving the Royal Court Theatre in London’s Sloan Square on July 10th, according to the BBC.

Those who saw him last say the actor had appeared to be in good spirits on the night, even having texted his girlfriend before he went off the radar. The Met was contacted on Wednesday morning by Sussex Police who said a body matching his description had been found last week. A number of actors took to Twitter to urge people to be on the lookout during Bhattacharjee’s disappearance. After news of the Casino Royal actor’s death, many used social media to express their grief and give their condolences to his family. Musician and composer Nitin Sawhney tweeted: "The saddest day. My friend (cast as Tagore in my play) Paul Bhattacharjee was found dead yesterday."

Muzz Khan, who appeared alongside the actor in Much Ado About Nothing, said: "Rest In Peace, Paul Bhattacharjee. I can't believe you're gone, mate."

Bhattacharjee leaves behind a legacy, featuring such films as White Teeth, Casino Royal and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
