Emma Chambers, co-star of The Vicar Of Dibley has died at 53 years of age.
Most of us who love Dawn French are well acquainted with Emma Chambers, as they played brilliantly side by side on the BBC comedy, The Vicar of Dibley. She is responsible for bringing much joy and laughter into the world and her performance as Alice Tinker will not be forgotten. She also played Honey Thacker in the film, Notting Hill.
This news took most of us completely by surprise, as we may not have known that the actress and comedienne was ill. According to her agency, she passed away from natural causes and they added, the would be “greatly missed.” We share those sentiments, as we loved watching her perform and it was always a pleasure to see her on the telly.
Chambers played Alice Tinker in The Vicar of Dibley between 1994 and 2007 with Dawn French. She went on to win the British Comedy Award for best TV actress in 1998 for her part in that show. The part she played on that show was only the tip of the iceberg when it came to her comedy and acting talents. She was also an incredible person from the inside out; something that showed through in the parts she played on TV and the silver screen.
Dawn French payed a humorous tribute, as we could expect:
