A well-known actress has been found dead after being hit by a train at Fulham Broadway station last week.

Briony McRoberts, 56, who was married to Downton Abbey actor David Robb, was found at the station just after 08:30 on Wednesday.

Her television career included nine years in Scottish drama Take The High Road, as well as appearances in Taggart, Eastenders, The Bill and Heartbeat.

Her agent, Katie Threlfall, said the vibrant actress had taken her own life, describing the death as ‘unbelievably shocking’.

“It’s just a terrible, terrible loss of a wonderful woman. Nobody had any idea it was going to happen. Her husband is deeply shocked,” she said.

“She was a wonderful woman who had troubles and she will be very much missed. It is just a tragedy.”

Fellow actors paid their respects to the actress, including Gary Hollywood, who also appeared in the long running Scottish soap.

“Numb RIP to my ‘lady Laird’ Briony McRoberts xxx” he wrote on Twitter.
