The body of an actor who appeared in the James Bond film Casino Royale has been found.

His body was found at Splash Point cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, on 12 July. It was confirmed on Wednesday that it was the actor.

Next of kin have been informed. Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

The actor, from Redbridge, north-east London, was said to be in good spirits when he was last seen but after sending a text message to his girlfriend at 21:00 BST, no-one heard from him and an appeal was launched.

The Met was contacted on Wednesday morning by Sussex Police who said a body matching his description had been found last week.

Twitter appeals

Mr Bhattacharjee had been due to appear in this week's play Talk Show at the Royal Court. His role in the play, which began last night, was recast.

Bend It Like Beckham actress Parminder Nagra, Sex in the City star Kim Cattrall and Stephen Fry all took to Twitter to appeal for help to find the actor.

Mr Bhattacharjee played a doctor in Casino Royale in 2006 and appeared in several episodes of EastEnders as Inzamam between 2008 and 2010. He had also appeared in TV shows Waking the Dead, Spooks and The Bill.

Last year he appeared as Benedick opposite Meera Syal in an Royal Shakespeare Company production of Much Ado about Nothing.
