Lynn Redgrave

Monday, May 03, 2010

The stage and screen actress Lynn Redgrave will forever be recognized for her role as the gawky, winsome Georgy Girl in 1966, which gained her an Academy Award nomination. She was born into a family of over five generations of remarkable actors, including her father Sir Michael Redgrave and her sister, Vanessa and nieces Natasha and Joely Richardson.

She had been battling breast cancer since 2003, and just died at 67. You can hear Leonard Lopate’s most recent interview with her from last December about her one-woman show, "Nightingale."
