Actress Lynn Redgrave passed away peacefully last night after a long battle with breast cancer. She was a star of the stage and the big and small screen, and a member of the Redgrave family acting dynasty, which also lost her niece Natasha Richardson some time ago.
Lynn Redgrave’s roles range from films like Georgy Girl and Gods and Monsters for which she received Oscar nominations to Tony nominated stage performances to recent television appearances on “Desperate Housewives” and “Ugly Betty.”
Her personal life has never been kept from the public. Suffering from bulimia, she became an open spokeswoman for Weight Watchers and released a book with her daughter about her fight with breast cancer. Ms. Redgrave will be missed.
Tragically, award-winning actress Natasha Richardson has passed away earlier today. The forty-five year old wife of actor Liam Neeson fell while skiing with no apparent injuries yesterday but later fell ill and eventually passed away.
I first saw her in Ken Russell’s surreal Gothic as the young Mary Shelley and was later impressed with her in the title role of Patty Hearst. She became of one the best working actresses around especially with A Handmaid’s Tale and Nell, the latter in which she starred with her husband and Jodie Foster.
We have certainly lost one of our most talented actresses. She will be missed.
