From ABC NEWS:

Lynn Redgrave, Famed British Actress, Dies of Breast Cancer
Sister of Vanessa Redgrave Dies at 67, a Year after Niece Natasha Richardson

By LUCHINA FISHER
May 3, 2010


British actress Lynn Redgrave, the star of "Georgy Girl" and "Gods and Monsters," has died at the age of 67.

Her publicist Rick Miramontez, speaking on behalf of her children, told The Associated Press that Redgrave died peacefully Sunday night at her Connecticut home surrounded by children Ben, Pema and Annabel.

"Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven-year journey with breast cancer," they said in a statement Monday. "She lived, loved and worked harder than ever before. The endless memories she created as a mother, grandmother, writer, actor and friend will sustain us for the rest of our lives. Our entire family asks for privacy through this difficult time."

Redgrave was a member of one of Britain's most celebrated theatrical families. Her death comes a year after her niece Natasha Richardson died from head injuries sustained in a skiing accident, and just a month after the death of her older brother, Corin Redgrave.

My sympathies go out to the whole family - what a horrible year for them! Vanessa has lost her daughter, her brother, and now her sister. R.I.P, and much too soon.

Lynn Redgrave

Hey there Georgy Girl!

Hey there! Georgie girl
Swinging down the street so fancy free,
nobody you meet could ever see
the loneliness there inside you.

Hey there! Georgie girl
why do all the boys just pass you by?
Could it be you just don't try, or is it the clothes you wear?
You're always window shopping but never stopping to buy.
So shed those dowdy feathers and fly a little bit.

Hey there! Georgie girl
there's another Georgie deep inside
Bring out all the love you hide and
oh, what a change there'd be,
The world would see a new Georgie girl.

Hey there! Georgie girl
Dreaming of the someone you could be
Life is a reality, you can't always run away.
Don't be so scared of changing and rearranging yourself.
It's time for jumping down from the shelf a little bit.

And didn't brother Corin die recently too?
Another good 'un gone.

I think Corin died just a couple of months ago.

I think it was Redgrave who made some important inroads for women actors who wanted to bring their babies and nannies to the set, so they could nurse their children during work breaks. She ended up leaving that program "House Calls," and it is so long ago I remember little else about the program, but she made a difference there, so that now having a space for childcare and nursing isn't uncommon.

I was in love the first time I saw "Georgy Girl".......a fine actress and advocate for a number of causes as well. Here's a link to her IMDB Information.
