I've noticed that over the past two days many people have found this website whilst searching for news about the death of Stephanie Parker. She's mentioned earlier in this blog because she played the lead role of Katie Davies in my Radio 4 play 'Lemon Meringue Pie' last year.
Tragically, the 22 yr old actress was found dead near Pontypridd early on Saturday morning. I had been overwhelmed by Stephanie's talent since first seeing her in the BBC Wales drama 'Belonging,' and wrote my first ever pieces of drama with her in mind. Although she never appeared in 'I Sing of A Maiden,' I was overjoyed when the producer at Radio 4 cast Stephanie in my first full length radio play. Obviously she did a tremendous job, and I always imagined that I'd write for her again in the future. No doubt she would have had a fabulous career and I am utterly shocked and saddened by her untimely death.
