Janus' Dad Is Found Hanged

British actress SAMANTHA JANUS is in mourning after her father was found hanged at his apartment on Saturday (22Aug09).
The 36-year-old actress, who is best known for her role in U.K. TV soap opera EastEnders, was visibly distraught as she visited the building in Brighton, England on Sunday (23Aug09), with her husband Mark Womack, to collect her father Noel's belongings.
The 60 year old former songwriter - whose sister Angie is the ex-wife of late soccer legend George Best - is believed to have committed suicide after a long battle with depression.
His body was discovered by a neighbour on Saturday afternoon.
Another neighbour, John Austin, tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "As far as we know he hanged himself."
Janus, who also starred in cult British comedy Game On and appeared alongside Patrick Swayze and Don Johnson in a West End production of Guys and Dolls, was too upset to speak to the press.
Her husband says, "She asks to be left alone to grieve with her family."
