Actress Lynn Redgrave Dies at 67


Actress Lynn Redgrave, who received an Academy Award nomination for her role in 1966's Georgy Girl, and starred in such films as Kinsey and Gods and Monsters (above, right), has died at 67, the AP reports:

"Her publicist Rick Miramontez, speaking on behalf of her children, said Redgrave died Sunday night at her Manhattan apartment. In 2003, Redgrave had been treated for breast cancer. Her death comes a year after her niece Natasha Richardson died from head injuries sustained in a skiing accident and just a month after the death of her older brother, Corin Redgrave."

  2. So sad, she is a legendary actress who I was hoping would do more films in the years to come. May she RIP, condolences to her family and friends.

  3. Poor Vanessa Redgrave and the rest of the Redgrave family. So sad for this many deaths to take place in such a short time.

    (Even though she was a great actress, I remember her best for those Weight Watchers ads a long time ago.)

  4. I had the pleasure of seeing this great lady on stage in the West End in Noises Off.

    May she rest in peace.

  6. What a tremendous loss this is. And her brother Corin died of cancer just a month ago. She leaves behind a wonderful body of work, and she will be long remembered for her talent and grace.

  7. Such sad news -- she was wonderful in "Gods & Monsters"!

    Does anyone else remember the remake that she and Vanessa Redgrave did of "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" circa 1991?

  12. Watch Lynn Redgrave's memorable "Kinsey" cameo portrayal of a lesbian gratefully acknowledging what Kinsey's research did for her personally:
