Lynn Redgrave,Part of Redgrave Dynasty, Dies at 67

The Redgrave family, in a growing tragedy that is starting to resemble that of the Kennedys', has lost another daughter.  Actress Lynn Redgrave has died of cancer at the age of 67.  Lynn's niece, Natasha Richardson, died last February and Lynn's brother, Corin, died just a month ago.  Ms. Redgrave received Oscar nominations for her performances in "Georgy Girl" and "Gods and Monsters" as well as Tony nominations for "Mrs. Warren's Profession", "Shakespeare For My Father", and "The Constant Wife".

"Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer," Redgrave's children 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."
