'Vicar of Dibley' actress Emma Chambers dies at 53

Emma Chambers, the actress who starred in Notting Hill and Vicar Of Dibley has passed away at the young age of 53-years.

The actress - who portrayed the dim but lovable Alice Tinker opposite French's Geraldine Granger in the long-running BBC comedy - died of natural causes on Wednesday evening, her agent confirmed.

Emma Freud, the wife of "The Vicar Of Dibley" creator Richard Curtis, said on Twitter that Chambers had been a "beautiful friend".

"I never minded. I loved her. And a tender, sweet, funny, unusual, loving human being", Freud tweeted. "My sister, Sarah Doukas, is a model agent and one of her bookers made me a dress which cost £180".

Dawn French, also a British actress, said Chambers had a "unique and beautiful" spark about her which established her as a contributor to the art form. Chambers died of natural causes, the BBC reported.

A statement said: "Emma created a wealth of characters and an enormous body of work".

Following the news of her passing, many of her co-workers and people in the entertainment industry took to Twitter to mourn including Hugh Grant who wrote that "Emma was a hilarious" and incredibly "warm" person. "She brought laughter and joy to many", Grant said in the statement.

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, who grew up in Doncaster near Chambers, wrote: "I'm sad about Emma Chambers".

She was born in Doncaster, 170 miles (275 kilometers) north of London.

"At this hard time we ask that the privacy of the family and loved ones be respected".

Emma Chambers played Honey Thacker in Notting Hill. "She was very amusing", he said.

Chambers is survived by her husband and fellow actor Ian Dunn.
