English actress Charlotte Coleman, who gained big-screen recognition in the 1993 comedy Four Weddings And A Funeral as Hugh Grant's wacky flatmate Scarlett, has died at her home in London following a massive asthma attack. She was 33.

Man, that's horrible. 33 and asthma. I just wouldn't expect that I guess.
Seth,
It happens more than people know! I lost my first cousin that way. You try to equate the current state of medical advancements with today but we still have young people dieing each and every day due to asthma complications.

Very sad news, which will depress me for the rest of the day. Let's not also forget her brilliant role in Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit.

Very saddened to hear this.
Not only was she talented, but I always found her to be very beautiful. My condolences go her family and friends.

Yeah, they annouced this just before Home Truths on Radio 4 and I was really shocked. It's terrible way to die.

That's a real shame. I thought she was quite good in Four Weddings.
Always sad to see someone go so young. My heart goes out to her family.

Was she the one who said the "f" word like 30 times in the opening of the film?

Wow I never knew Charlotte was the same person who played the young lead in "Oranges are not the only fruit". Thanks for pointing that out Andrew. What sad news this is.

Sad indeed. I've had asthma all my life and have come close to losing my life on 3 occassions. Surely not something to be taken lightly.

I recall a few years ago Niki Taylor lost her sister, who was also a supermodel in the making, from asthma.

Four Funerals and a Wedding is definitely one of my favourite movies from the U.K.

She will be missed, but never forgotten.

I too miss Charlotte Coleman, she will always be remembered to me and alot of kids who grew up in the early 1980's as "Marmalade Atkins" during childhood her show was watched alot over here in the U.K. Her "Watcha Cock" line had kids in the playgrounds using it, and had us laughing everytime!

Sorry to hear of her passing, she will be missed!
