Lynn Redgrave, 1943-2010

The death has been announced of actress Lynn Redgrave, who had a lengthy career in film, on stage, and on television. Redgrave started on stage, but quickly began to work in movies as well, with her first movie appearance coming in a small role in the 1963 Best Picture Oscar winner, Tom Jones. Redgrave herself was nominated for two Oscars. The first came for playing the title role in one of the quintessentially mod 1960s looks at London, Georgy Girl, while the second came over 30 years later, a supporting nomination for playing housekeeper to dying director James Whale in the film Gods and Monsters. Redgrave was 67, and is survived by her older sister Vanessa.
