Julie Harris Dead - Broadway Legend Dies at 87

Legendary Broadway actress Julie Harris has died at the age of 87, according to the Associated Press.

The actress passed away at her home in West Chatham, Mass., her friend Francesca James told the news wire. She previously had suffered two strokes.

During her career, Julie won an unprecedented five Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Play. She was also given a special Lifetime Achievement Tony Award in 2002.

Most audiences will probably remember Julie for playing the free-spirited Lilimae Clements for more than seven years on the classic television series Knot’s Landing or as the leading lady in James Dean‘s East of Eden.

We send our condolences to Julie‘s friends and family during this difficult time.
