Casino Royale - Missing Casino Royale Actor Found Dead

Missing Casino Royale actor Paul Bhattacharjee has been found dead in England.

The body of a man matching his description was discovered on Friday (12Jul13) near the cliffs at Splash Point in East Sussex. Bhattacharjee has now been formally identified and his next of kin have been informed, officials at Scotland Yard have confirmed.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

The actor, who played a secret service medic in the 2006 Bond movie, went missing last Wednesday (10Jul13) after leaving rehearsals for the play Talk Show at London's Royal Court theatre.

The 53 year old did not make it to rehearsals the following day (11Jul13), prompting friends and family to begin a search.

British actor Stephen Fry was among those who took to Twitter.com to appeal for help finding Bhattacharjee by posting a link to his page on a missing person's website.

As well as Casino Royale, Bhattacharjee appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Dirty Pretty Things and longrunning U.K. soap opera EastEnders.
