Elisabeth Sladen, aged 63, has died of cancer related illness. She is best known for her portrayal of Sarah Jane Smith from Doctor Who.
She first came onto the show in the early 70s and is perhaps known as the most popular companion to join the Doctor on his adventures. She has reprised the role many times over the years, and even landed her own show, The Sarah Jane Adventures, beloved by teens and adults alike.
I'm really sad over this. She will be missed.
