Actress killed herself: coroner
27 October 2004

An actress who committed suicide by stabbing herself in the chest was "a beautiful and luminous spirit", her heartbroken family said.

Fritha Goodey, 31, who starred in About A Boy with Hugh Grant, was found dead in her West London home by her distressed father, Glenn, an inquest heard.

He called an ambulance but Ms Goodey, who had suffered from anorexia for years, was pronounced dead at the scene. She had killed herself with a single stab wound.
