    It has just been revealed that actress Patricia Laffan died in 2014.

    Best remembered for being Nyah, the Devil Girl from Mars (1954) and Poppaea in Quo Vadis (1951).

    I was sorry to learn of Patricia Laffan's death in 2014 and which has only been reported very recently. I enjoyed her film performances in the following films;

    Death In High Heels (1947)
    Escape Route (1952). I love the scene in the film which sees Patricia Laffan hopping off a double-decker bus whilst it's still moving and then jumping into a taxi. When I was a schoolkid I always remember the bus conductor telling me off for jumping off a double-decker whilst it was still moving.
    Devil Girl From Mars (1954)
    23 Paces To Baker Street (1956)
    Hidden Homicide (1959)

    What is the source for this? I don't see anything about it on the web except Wikipedia noting her death and they are not too reliable if it comes solely from them.

    According to Patricia Laffan's Wikipedia page someone has uploaded a copy of Patricia's death certificate at the bottom of the page
