Such a sad thing to report — Emma Chambers, a longtime character actor best known for her role as Honey in Notting Hill, has died.
She was just 53 years old.
Grant continued with a statement for the media (below):
“Over the years, Emma created a wealth of characters and an immense body of work. She brought laughter and joy to many, and will be greatly missed.”
Chambers, an English actress, was best known to American fans by appearing alongside Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts in the 1999 film Notting Hill, but she worked for a long time on other projects in the U.K., as well, and was a star on the long-running British comedy The Vicar Of Dibley.
She even won a British Comedy Award for her work on that show.
She is survived by her husband Ian Dunn, who is also an actor.
Hugh Grant has reached out to offer his condolences (below):
Emma Chambers was a hilarious and very warm person and of course a brilliant actress. Very sad news.
