RIP: Lynn Redgrave

More sad news, folks. Theater, film, and television actress Lynn Redgrave died Sunday night at age 67.  The cause of her death is cited as a result of an ongoing battle with breast cancer.

One of a clan of actors, Redgrave rose to fame with UK classics like Tom Jones and Georgy Girl, for which she earned an Academy Award nomination.  A frequent player in London's West End and on Broadway, Redgrave made a triumphant return to film in the 1990's with featured roles in acclaimed movies such as Shine and Gods and Monsters.   She recently put on a one-woman show entitled Nightingale in the wake of her 2003 mastectomy.

Lynn Redgrave's death follows less than a month after her brother Corin succumbed to prostate cancer, and roughly a year after the tragic death of niece Natasha Richardson.  She is survived by her older sister, actress Vanessa Redgrave.  Seriously sad.
