Where Is Paul Bhattacharjee? Actor's Disappearance Sparks Fears For Safety

Paul Bhattacharjee was in high spirits after he left rehearsals at London's Royal Court theatre at approximately 6.15pm on Wednesday 10th July. His girlfriend received a text from the James Bond actor at 9pm but he has not been seen since, with increasing fears for the 53 year-old's safety. As reported by The Guardian, police have described Bhattacharjee's disappearance as "totally out of character" and are appealing to the public for any information or witnesses.

A Royal Court spokesperson has said that "He left on Wednesday in good spirits but didn't make it to rehearsals the next day," which was unusual for the hard-working actor who has starred in Spooks, The Bill, Waking the Dead and Eastenders. He was in the midst of rehearsals for Talk Show - a black comedy - in which Bhattacharjee's character has now been recast with performances having commenced from 16th July.

Hundreds have taken to Twitter to spread the world about Bhattacharjee's disappearance with Stephen Fry expressing his concern for the fellow actor's whereabouts by retweeting The Vampire Diaries' Daniel Gillies' tweet that said "Please read and RT @stephenfry - a wonderful actor and lovely man has gone missing' to his six million followers.

Police have described Mr Bhattacharjee, who is also known by first name Gautam, is an Asian male of slim build and 6ft tall with short grey hair. At the time of his disappearance, he was wearing light-coloured trousers, a blue shirt, light coloured shoes and he had a black backpack with him. If you live in the Redbridge area familiarise yourself with the actor's photo and call the police if you have seen or heard any information.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call the police's non-emergency line on 101 or Missing People on 116 000.
