Tributes have poured in for "gifted" and "deep thinking" 007 star Paul Bhattacharjee, from north-east London, whose body was found near cliffs two days after he disappeared.
Meera Syal, who appeared alongside him in the Royal Shakespeare Company production of Much Ado about Nothing, said:
"Paul was an incredibly gifted versatile and generous actor but also complex, deep thinking, engagingly opinionated and politically committed as a personality, truly wonderful to share a stage with.
"I don't think any of us who saw him recently or were working with him had any idea this awful tragedy was going to happen.
"We are all sending our love and prayers to his family and partner."
