An EastEnders spokesman said: "We at EastEnders are very sorry to learn that Hilda has passed away. She was a lovely actress who brought her great humour and wit to the role of Nana Moon which earned her many fans, young and old alike.
"She was a much-loved member of our cast who appeared in over 200 episodes of EastEnders, most notably the award-winning episode that saw her character, Nana Moon, visit her beloved late husband's grave in Normandy with grandson Alfie Moon (Shane Richie).
