Fritha Goodey

Fritha Goodey was a British actress of About a Boy, The Lost Prince, Case of Evil, Bookcruncher and 2004's Alfie fame. Many considered her to be on the verge of major stardom at the time of her 2004 suicide.

Fritha Goodey appeared on stage in Some Explicit Polaroids, She Stoops to Conquer, and A Laughing Matter. Fritha was also a radio personality, lending her distinctive voice to Wuthering Heights, The Case of the Determined Client (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes mystery), The Silver Pigs, The Warwickshire Scandal and Taken at the Flood.

She had suffered from anorexia nervosa for many years, and nearly died years earlier as a result. It was said she lost three years of her life during an extended period of hospitalization and recovery, back before her acting career had taken off. She continued to struggle with the life-threatening condition until her death. While her work was praised by critics and her fellow actors alike, she had become riddled with self-doubt during rehearsals of a prestigious theatre production of Terence Rattigan's Man and Boy. The play was to mark her return to the stage, and was due to tour before opening on London's West End.

The coroner's investigation revealed she killed herself with a single stab wound to the chest with a kitchen knife. Following her death, her family issued a statement saying: "Despite her struggle with illness she radiated happiness to all around her. We admire her strength and courage and above all, we love her. We are heartbroken."
