Lynn Redgrave dead at 67

Oscar-nominated actress dies "after a seven year journey with breast cancer," says family

Lynn Redgrave, the Oscar-nominated actress from the famous Redgrave acting family, has died at the age of 67. Redgrave received her first Academy Award nomination for the film, Georgy Girl (playing a role that had been turned down by her sister Vanessa). Lynn has appeared in many stage productions in London and New York, having famously performed two one-woman shows, Shakespeare For My Father and Nightingale, about her life and family (including her father, actor Michael Redgrave). Redgrave’s death comes a year after the tragic death of her niece, Natasha Richardson.
