lynn redgrave – rest in peace

sad news: the entertainment world has lost a true legend of stage, screen and television … actress and playwright lynn redgrave died yesterday after an arduous seven-year battle with breast cancer at her home in connecticut at the age of 67 – i remember lynn most recently for her 1998 oscar-nominated role in gods and monsters plus i’ll always think of those weight watchers commercials that aired when in the eighties where she proudly declared this is living! yet if you take a look at her wikipedia page – she’s done so much work over the years starting in 1963 and then hit it big with her turn in georgy girl (1966) lynn comes from a highly respected british acting family – her older sister vanessa redgrave (73) has been through so much over the past year – she lost her daughter natasha richardson from injuries sustained during a skiing accident (march of 2009) and just last month lynn and vanessa lost their brother corin (70) to cancer – my thoughts & prayers go out to the entire redgrave clan – especially lynn’s three children – she is going to be missed – thankfully ms. redgrave definitely left a lasting legacy of film and the written word behind – lynn was an excellent actress and a consummate professional! popbytes over & out for tonight – much love to all as always – xo

“Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer. She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before. The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives. Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time.” – The Redgrave Famiy
