“We are very sad to announce the untimely death, from natural causes, of the acclaimed actress Emma Chambers,” Grant said in a statement. “Over the years, Emma created a wealth of characters and an immense body of work. She brought laughter and joy to many, and will be greatly missed. At this difficult time we ask that the privacy of the family and loved ones be respected.”

Fans of Notting Hill, which starred Grant and Julia Roberts, will remember her character Honey as the eccentric, self-deprecating sidekick with "funny goggly eyes," "feathers" for hair, and "boosies" that are "shrinking." She soon enlists Roberts' Hollywood A-List Anna Scott to be her best friend and proposes marriage to Grant's scruffy roommate, Spike (Rhys Ifans).
Grant was among those paying tribute to the Doncaster-born star, tweeting, "Emma Chambers was a hilarious and very warm person and of course a brilliant actress. Very sad news."
Emma Freud, broadcaster and wife of Notting Hill director Richard Curtis, called Chambers a "tender, sweet, funny, unusual, loving human being."
