Clare Cathcart dead: Call The Midwife and Doctors actress dies aged 48
'It is with huge sadness that we have to report the death of our beloved friend and client Clare Cathcart,' a representative said
Clare Cathcart, noted for her roles in Call The Midwife and Doctors, has died at her home in Brighton.
“It is with huge sadness that we have to report the death of our beloved friend and client Clare Cathcart,” a representative for the actress said in a statement.
“Clare was brilliant, fearless and funny; a wonderful actor who we are immensely proud to have represented.
“Her credits are too vast to list in full but, to name a few, she’ll be remembered for her work at The Royal Court, The RSC, The National, The Tricycle and Chichester Festival Theatre as well as innumerable appearances on screen, most recently in New Tricks and Call The Midwife.
“Without her razor-sharp wit and glorious laugh the world will seem a darker place. We will miss her enormously.”
Her cause of death has not been confirmed.
Charlie Condou, a friend of Cathcart’s and a former Coronation Street actor, said news of her death had come as a “shock” to him.
“One of the most beautiful people I've known,” he wrote. “A 20 year friendship I'll treasure forever. I love you Clare Cathcart.”
