Corin and Lynn Redgrave
Added under Obituary
Lynn Redgrave, a member of the distinguished British acting family who became an overnight sensation playing the title character in the 1966 film "Georgy Girl" and later achieved acclaim on stage as both an actress and a writer, has died. She was 67.
Redgrave died Sunday with her children at her side at her home in Kent, Conn., said her publicist, Rick Miramontez.
"Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven-year journey with breast cancer," her children, Ben, Pema and Annabel, said in a statement Monday. "She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before."
Redgrave's death closely follows that of her actor brother, Corin.
"Corin was at the heart of our family and so many friends," the statement said. "We will miss him so very much."
Corin Redgrave suffered a heart attack and collapsed at a political rally for the homeless in June 2005. He responded after a period of hospitalization and was released. Four years earlier, he had been treated for prostate cancer.
