From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Charlotte Ninon Coleman (April 3, 1968 - November 14, 2001) was a British actress.

She was born in London. Her mother was the actress Ann Beach, and her father was the TV producer Francis Coleman. Her younger sister was the actress Lisa Coleman.

She went to the Anna Scher Theatre school in Islington, north London, because she thought she was "too cool" to go to the Brownies.

Early TV roles in A Choice of Evils (BBC, 1977) and Two People (LWT, c.1977, as Emma Moffatt) followed. She had a crush on Stephen Garlick, her co-star in Two People. For the role, she had to choose a stuffed toy for Emma to carry; she chose a toy which she named "Haggis", which she still had when interviewed in 1990.

Her first major TV role was as Sue, in Southern Television's Worzel Gummidge. This ran for four series (and a Christmas special), from 1978 to 1981 on the ITV network.

This was soon followed by her role as the teenage rebel Marmalade Atkins, firstly in Marmalade Atkins in Space (a one-off drama shown in 1981 as part of the Dramarama strand), and then in two series, Educating Marmalade (1982 - 1983) and Danger - Marmalade at Work (1984). All three were made by Thames and written by Andrew Davies.

Her best known film role was as Scarlett in Four Weddings and a Funeral.

She died of an asthma attack at the age of 33.
