British actor Paul Bhattacharjee, who has appeared in films including Casino RoyaleandThe Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, was found dead in East Sussex after going missing for several days, the BBC reports.

Bhattacharjee, 53, was last seen leaving the Royal Court theatre in London's Sloane Square on July 10. The London-born actor was found at Splash Point cliffs in Seaford, East Sussex, on July 12. Police said his death was not being treated as suspicious.

He was said to be in good spirits when he was last seen after sending a text message to his girlfriend at 9 p.m. last week. When no one heard from him, a search was launched.

Stars including Bend It Like Beckham actress Parminder Nagra and Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall took to Twitter asking for help in finding Bhattacharjee. Cattrall retweeted a tweet from the Royal Court seeking information on Bhattacharjee's whereabouts.

Bhattacharjee was due to appear in this week's play Talk Show at the Royal Court in London. His role in the play has been recast.

Bhattacharjee played a doctor in Casino Royale in 2006 and also appeared in several episodes of the British TV series EastEnders between 2008 and 2010.
