    Confirmed by her husband Damian Lewis on Twitter after a battle with cancer.

    I hadn't been all that familiar with Helen until a couple of years ago where she played a stormer in Season 2 of Penny Dreadful. Of course she's known for other stuff like Peaky Blinders and Harry Potter.

    Such a sad loss at 52.

    Loved her in Penny Dreadful. She's obviously great in plenty of other things, but that one always sticks out for me. That's terrible.

    Was very good as Cherie Blair in The Queen, alongside Michael Sheen, who was even better again as her husband.

    A terrible loss taken far too young, she had so many more great roles to play. She play great roles and entertained a generation of Harry potter fans. She will be greatly missed particularly by me for playing Aunt Pol in Peaky Blinders.

    Possibly one of my favourite scenes ever is in PB when herself and Tommy go to the nuns at the start of season 5.

    She was an absolute powerhouse in the series. Super super actor.
