Lynn Redgrave 1943 - 2010
The fine actor Lynn Redgrave has died of breast cancer, aged 67. This is a tough time for the Redgrave family, with this news coming within the month of the death of her brother Corin, and during the weekend of (private) celebrations for the life of her niece Natasha Richardson at the Royal Court Theatre in London. I'm taking a moment to remember her work, particularly her indelible turn as the landlady Mrs Wilkinson in David Cronenberg's postwar psychodrama Spider.
