They don't give a cause of death...they just say 'natural causes'.  Raises more questions than answers. She was tooooo young.

I'll never forget the hilarious moment of her closing lines in a Christmas episode of Vicar of Dibley where, as Verger, she had to read out in front of the congregatiion one of the passages from The Bible in which it said something on the lines of "...and Mary gave suck to the holy child..."

Unfortunately, the Dibley Parish Church Bible was hundreds of years old, from the days when the typeface letter for "s" looked exactly like the letter "f".....

Absolute classic. Great actress; she has quit the stage long before her time.

Agree. I spent a lot of last night watching some of her best clips. I was howling with laughter and tears. Far too young Sad

Emma's family said she had chronic asthma. She starred in Notting Hill with Hugh Grant.  

Coincidentally ANOTHER of Hugh Grant's costars - the young actress in 4 Weddings & a Funeral - died of an asthma attack too. And a guy who was a contestant in The Apprentice (with Alan Sugar) apparently died of asthma too, he was a very successful businessman in his 20's or 30's. For all the advances in medicine, Asthma is still clearly a menace! Shocked
