NEW YORK (Reuters) – Lynn Redgrave, a leading member of a British acting dynasty who was nominated for Oscars in 1966 for Georgy Girl and in 1998 for Gods and Monsters, has died of breast cancer, her family said yesterday.
Redgrave died at the age of 67 on Sunday night at her home in Connecticut, her publicist Rick Miramontez said.
“Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven-year journey with breast cancer,” her three children Ben, Pema, and Annabel said in a statement.
“The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives.”
Redgrave, the London-born youngest child of actors Sir Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson, brought to the stage her reflections on one of Britain’s most celebrated and complicated theatrical families.
