Actress Melanie Clark Pullen, who played Pauline Fowler’s niece Mary Flaherty on the BBC soap for 18 months, has tragically died at a young age
Former EastEnders actress Melanie Clark Pullen has tragically died at the age of 46 following a battle with breast cancer.
The tragic star – who played Pauline Fowler’s niece – was diagnosed with illness in January 2019 – and sadly died on March 29 this year after rounds of radiotherapy.
She leaves behind her husband Simon and three children.
In 2020, Melanie was given the all-clear – telling The Irish News at the time: “I got the all clear. I’m cancer free, which is great, so now it’s all about recovery.”
But last June she was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
She posted on her website: “I was only given the all clear from cancer 18 months ago and it’s a cruel blow to think that I will now be starting into some kind of treatment again and that this time it will be long term and a permanent fixture of my life.”
