Hugh Grant Reacts to ‘Notting Hill’ Actress Emma Chambers’ Death: ‘Very Sad News’

Actor remembers his onscreen sister as “a hilarious and very warm person”

“Notting Hill” star Hugh Grant mourned the death of his castmate Emma Chambers on Saturday, remembering Chambers as a “hilarious and very warm person” and calling her death “very sad news.”

“Emma Chambers was a hilarious and very warm person and of course a brilliant actress. Very sad news,” Grant wrote on Twitter.

Chambers was 53.

In the 1999 film, Chambers played Honey, the sister of Grant’s William Thacker and a hyper-enthusiastic fan of Hollywood star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts), who becomes romantically entangled with William.

Chambers’ agent, John Grant, told the BBC that the actress died of natural causes on Wednesday, and would be “greatly missed.”

“Emma created a wealth of characters and an immense body of work. She brought laughter and joy to many,” Grant added.

In addition to portraying Honey in “Notting Hill,” Chambers’ other roles included Alice Tinker on the BBC’s “The Vicar of Dibley.”

Chambers is survived by her husband, “Coronation Street” actor Ian Dunn.
