Kate Beckinsale paid tribute to her late father Richard on the 43rd anniversary of his death.
The Porridge and Rising Damp actor died of a heart attack on March 19, 1979 when he was 31 and Underworld actress Kate was five.
To mark the date, she shared a series of photos with her 5.2million Instagram followers.
One picture showed a young Beckinsale being held by her father, while others showed a plaque celebrating his career and a news article announcing his death.
She wrote: “I can’t remember how it feels not to miss him. It’s part of me, like my blood.
“Always aware of how life can fall apart. May all fathers everywhere come home safely.
“6. July 1947 – March 19, 1979. How much love have you brought x”
Also as an actor, Richard was best known for playing prison inmate Lennie Godber on the popular 1970s BBC sitcom Porridge and Alan Moore on the ITV series Rising Damp.
He had two daughters – Samantha from his first marriage and Kate from his second to actress Judy Loe.
He also wrote poetry and a collection of his works was published posthumously.
In 2013, Kate unveiled a plaque in his honor at his former school, College House Junior School in Nottinghamshire.
