Actress Lynn Redgrave Has Died
Lynn Redgrave, a member of a powerful acting dynasty who first made an impression in unglamorous 1960s screen roles, such as a small role in "Tom Jones" and the impulsive ugly-duckling star of "Georgy Girl" and went on to an erratic, occasionally compelling career on stage, screen and TV, died May 2 at her apartment in New York.
She was 67. No specific cause of death was reported, but Ms. Redgrave had been treated for breast cancer in recent years.
The Redgraves had been a leading British thespian family for generations, stretching well back into the 19th century. Ms. Redgrave was the youngest child of actors Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson and the sibling of actress Vanessa Redgrave and actor Corin Redgrave, who died on April 6.
A full obituary is in the works now, but in the meantime, please leave your memories of the actress below.
