Oscar-nominated actress Lynn Redgrave dies at 67

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-05-03

Actress Lynn Redgrave died Sunday at her home in New York at the age of 67. A member of one of Britain's most famous acting families, Redgrave began working in film during the 1960s and was nominated for an Oscar for her role in "Gods and Monsters".

AFP - Oscar-nominated British actress Lynn Redgrave has died, her spokesman Rick Miramontez said Monday, in a new blow to one of Britain's most famous acting dynasties.

Redgrave, 67, "passed away late last night at her home," Miramontez confirmed to AFP, just over three weeks after her brother, Corin, who was also a well-known actor, died from an illness at the age of 70.

Lynn and Corin are survived by their sister, Vanessa Redgrave, 73, and were the third generation of one of Britain's most famous acting dynasties.

Lynn Redgrave, the daughter of Michael Redgrave, was also the aunt of television and film stars Joely and Natasha Richardson.

Natasha Richardson, who was married to actor Liam Neeson, died after a skiing accident in Canada last year.

Lynn Redgrave received two Oscar nominations for her role in the 1966 film "Georgy Girl" and the 1998 "Gods and Monsters."
