Brookside and The Responder actress Sylvie Gatrill dead

Tributes have poured in for actress and casting legend Sylvie Gatrill, who has died.

It is thought that the Bottle-born actress was suffering from cancer.

Sylvie appeared in numerous TV programmes over years, including Little Boy Blue and The Responder.

Sylvie also ran the Hope Street-based training and talent agency Allstars Casting, representing actors from Liverpool.

The Responder writer Tony Schumacher paid tribute to her, writing: ‘So sorry to hear of the passing of the quite brilliant Sylvie Gatrill. 

‘Such a talented actress who was so important in helping set the tone of The Responder.

‘My thoughts are with her family.’

Chris Tomlinson, theatre director and Associate Director of Young Everyman & Playhouse, said: ‘I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone quite like this woman, in all my time in Liverpool. Hope Street will be a much quieter place without you.’

She appeared in five episodes of Brookside in 1995, portraying Lesley Donnelly.

More to come.
