Holby City actress Laura Sadler died today five days after she plunged 40ft from a balcony, a hospital spokesman said.
The 22-year-old suffered serious head injuries when she fell from the London apartment of her boyfriend and co-star George Calil early on Sunday.
Sadler, who played staff nurse Sandy Harper in the BBC1 drama, was taken to the intensive care unit at Charing Cross Hospital in west London.
Her mother, Sonya, kept a constant bedside vigil beside her daughter throughout her last days.
A hospital spokesman said tonight: “We regret to announce the death of Laura Sadler, who died peacefully at 5.30pm on the 19th of June.
“Her family were present at her bedside. We would be grateful if the privacy of Laura’s family would be respected.”
The spokesman said there would be no further comment from the hospital today.
