    :fragile: Condolences to her family and friends -- what a horrible year they have had.

    R.I.P. Lynn, you will always be a young and lively Georgy Girl in my mind.

    R.I.P. 67 is so not old - but unfortunately cancer doesn't care about age :( She was a wonderful actress - so very classy and she will be missed.

    Wow, I don't think I knew she'd had cancer. And for a minute I'd forgotten about the other family tragedy just a year ago.

    I loved her in Georgy Girl (and the song, too!).

    Reading an article on her death, I found out that her brother Corin had died only about a month ago. Coupled with Natasha Richardson's death last year, I can't imagine what Vanessa must be going through. :(

    Watching this clip is now awfully sad:

    She was an amazing actress, a pioneer for working women's rights, and a very courageous person.
    I will miss her.

    Peace and comfort to her family and friends.

    How terrible for her family. Vanessa Redgrave, in particular, has a had a very difficult year.

    Bummer. I always enjoyed her acting, her personality on talk shows, and her bucking-the-formula beauty. We will miss you, Lynn.

    She was my favorite actress from the Redgrave family.
    One of her superb perfomances was in Shine as Gillian, the wife of David Helfgott (played by Geoffrey Rush).

    RIP! :(

    Vanessa Redgrave has that new movie set in Tuscany coming out this month. I am looking forward to it.

    Soooo sad - especially with all the recent losses in the Redgrave family.
    I have a happy memory of her talking to Mr. Accordion after a show Off-Broadway. She was incredibly gracious!

    Although she made several movies and had a stellar career as a stage actpr, I was knew of her primarily from the sitcom, House Calls, that she starred in along with Wayne Rogers (Trapper John from the TV show M*A*S*H), as well as the Weight Watchers commercials she did at one point :shuffle: .

    It's been a tragic year for the Redgrave/Richardson families, what with Natasha Ricardson's death last year and the death of Vanessa's and Lynn's brother, Corin.

    RIP.
