Former child actor Terry Sue-Patt, who played Benny Green in the children’s TV series Grange Hill, has been found dead in east London.
The British actor appeared in the programme between 1978 and 1982.
Scotland Yard said officers forced their way into a Northcote Road flat in Walthamstow on Friday where the body of a man in his 50s was found.
Former colleagues in Grange Hill and numerous others took to Twitter to pay tribute to the actor.
Grange Hill ran for 30 years between 1978 and 2008
Erkan Mustafa, who played Rollo in the TV series, tweeted: “Rip terry sue patt aka #bennygreen#grangehill legend you will be missed by true friends”.
The Met Police said it was called to the property at 13:45 BST after concerns had been raised about the welfare of its occupant and officers “forced entry” into the flat.
A spokesperson said the death was not believed to be suspicious and next of kin had been informed.
