Natasha Pope's daughter is missing

Post by Canadanne » Mon Nov 13, 2017 3:26 pm

The 19-year-old daughter of Natasha Pope (who played Velda, Morghanna and Brangwen in Series 3) has been missing for almost a week, last seen in Swanage on the afternoon of Tuesday 7th November. Gaia suffers from severe epilepsy and there are fears that she may be lying unconscious somewhere without her medication. I was vaguely aware of this story in the news over the past few days, but didn't realise it was Natasha's daughter until I heard her making an appeal on the radio earlier. :/

This is turning into a pretty horrendous news week for ex-Knightmare cast members. :(

Natasha has urged the public to keep searching for Gaia:
