Lynn Redgrave Dies at 67

Lynn Redgrave has passed away at the age of 67.

The actress, part of the Redgrave dynasty of entertainers, fought a long battle with breast cancer and died at her home in Connecticut on Sunday (May 2), according to People.

Lynn earned an Oscar nod for her work on Georgy Girl in 1966; more recently, she appeared on Ugly Betty and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

The family has had a difficult past year - Lynn‘s older brother, Corin, died at 70 last month and her niece, Natasha Richardson, died after a skiing accident last March.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Redgrave family.

    So sad.

    The Redgrave family has endured so much turmoil and heartbreak over the past year, I only hope that together and with the support of friends they can find the strength to recover from such recent losses.

    A wonderfully talented actress, and part of one of the most highly respected and brilliant families in the film industry.

    Oh dear. I’m so saddened by all these terrible losses. It seems like several members of the family are gathering in Heaven…. May they all rest in peace. I don’t really know much about the Redgraves since I’m from another generation, I just know how amazingly talented and respected they are ..but I happen to know Natasha and I was so shocked when I heard about her death. Ugh… There has to be a better place than here though. I like the idea that they must be there. RIP!

Just like every other tool, this type of shear also must be well kept and maintained. Clean it after each time you employ it and don’t leave it wet and damp.
