RIP Alice.


Very sad to hear that the lovely Emma Chambers has died unexpectedly aged 53. Who could forget her fabulous portrayal of the charmingly dim-witted Alice Tinker in The Vicar of Dibley.

Here she is at her wedding to Hugo, complete with her Teletubby bridesmaids.

  3. Very sad so young. I noticed in her obituary this morning that her brother and sister founded the famous Storm model agency, and still run it, who of course discovered Kate Moss.

  4. Such sad news ...... such a brilliant actress ... loved her in Notting Hill as well. I just read that she had asthma attacks. Charlotte Coleman, another lovely actress who was in Four Weddings, died age 33 from an asthma attack. XXXX

    1. I don't think she made a bad film. Yes, poor Charlotte Coleman; she really made 4 weddings the success that it was.

  5. Such a shame, she was refreshingly unique. Lovely clip, which I've not seen before. I also loved her in Notting Hill.

  8. Surprising news when I heard it today, at the very young age of 53. What a great role she played so well in VofD.

  11. Sorry to hear about Alice's passing. I enjoyed watching The Vicar, but had never seen that episode. Thanks for sharing it.

  12. I feel sad when I realise that I have had thirty more years than she had - she was always a delight.

  14. Cro, not sure if you watch BBC TV, but the episode of Alice's wedding has just been shown as a tribute. As delightful as it was 20 odd years ago. Emma had such perfect timing, naturally funny, such a loss.
    RIP.

    1. We do get BBC, but I must have missed it. Shame; I'd loved to have seen it again.
