Kate Beckinsale has 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 five.

He shared a series of photos with his 5.2 million Instagram followers marking the date.

One image showed a young Beckinsale being held by her father, while others featured a commemorative plaque celebrating her career and a news article announcing her death.

She wrote: “I don’t remember how it feels to not miss him. It is part of me, like my blood.

“Always aware of how life can be shattered. May all daddies, everywhere, come home safe and sound.

“July 6, 1947-March 19, 1979. How much love did you bring x”

Also an actor, Richard was best known for playing the recluse Lennie Godber in the popular 1970s BBC sitcom Porridge and Alan Moore in the ITV series Rising Damp.

He had two daughters: Samantha from his first marriage and Kate from his second with actress Judy Loe.

He also wrote poetry and a collection of his work was published posthumously.

In 2013, Kate unveiled a plaque in her honor at her former school, College House Junior School, in Nottinghamshire.
