A talented actress who was a regular in a long running BBC Wales drama series has been found hanged, police said.

The body of Stephanie Parker, 22, was found on open ground near Pontypridd, South Wales Police said.

The actress was a regular member of the cast of the BBC Wales drama, Belonging, and played the role of Stacey Weaver.

On Thursday last week the final episode in the long running series was broadcast across Wales.

"I can confirm that we investigated a report of a deceased woman on open ground near Pontypridd yesterday morning," a police spokesman said. "The incident is not regarded as suspicious and a report has been passed on to the HM coroner."

He confirmed that the recovered body had been identified as that of Stephanie Parker.

Clare Hudson, BBC Wales Head of Programmes, English Language, said" "Everyone at BBC Wales - especially all those who worked on Belonging - is extremely saddened at the news of Stephanie's tragic death.

"Stephanie was an immensely talented actor who, as Stacey, played a central role in Belonging since she was 15 as well as appearing in other BBC productions such as Casualty. Stephanie also worked with BBC Wales Radio Drama Department on productions for Radio Four.

"Stephanie's talent played a major part in making Belonging the success it was and I'm sure that the programme's fans will be shocked by this untimely news.

"Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this very difficult time."
