‘For the rest of the days of her life, she was a central part of mine. She was beautiful, obviously, and an immensely talented actor, and a wonderful friend, but more than anything she really did radiate this impossibly bright energy and life.
‘Even in her dark moments. And she had plenty of those, especially over the last few years. I’m trying to take comfort in knowing your struggles and pain and grief are at last, and last behind you.’
