Singer and actress Hannah Northedge has been found at Beachy Head. A search for Hannah commenced when she failed to return home in London after staying at the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne. Police were called to a report of a body on the beach on Thursday evening where she was sadly declared dead at the scene.
Hannah, 43, became known throughout the 2000’s as a wonderfully talented classical singer. She worked on ‘The Oxford Murders’ starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt as a session fixer, choir director, singer and actress. The composer of the film was so impressed with her work, she went on to win the contract to record the full original film soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios. On one of her many online profiles she described herself as “mildly obsessed with coffee, bluegrass and Brighton.” Her wide-ranging talents included acting, singing and composing as well as playing guitar, piano and bass. She also did musical direction and musical arrangement for the critically-acclaimed film ‘The Riot Club.’
