The famous Georgy Girl actress, Lynn Redgrave, has passed away at the age of 67 at her home in Kent, Conn.  Lynn Redgrave was an influential film, television, and theater actress who was part of family of well known actors and actresses.

The cause of Lynn Redgrave’s death was not immediately released to the public.

The Redgrave family wrote a statement to the public:

Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer. 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 diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2002, had a mastectomy in January 2003 and underwent chemotherapy.

Redgrave was born in London in 1943 and despite self-doubts pursued the family trade. She studied at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama, and was not yet 20 when she debuted professionally on stage in a London production of “A Midsummer’s Night Dream.”
