Lynn Redgrave, actress of stage, screen and television died yesterday in Connecticut at the age of 67 after a seven year battle with breast cancer.  She was seen out and about looking healthy as late as January this year.  Alongside her sister, Vanessa and Brother Corin (who died earlier this year), Lynn upheld the qualities of the British acting dynasty from which she was born.  Known for her comedic abilities and recognized early on as Vanessa’s cheeky younger sister, she rose to stardom as the modish “Georgy Girl”.  Weight was always an issue for Lynn, known as the pudgy younger sister, she struggled with bulimia but later became a spokesperson for Weight Watchers.  Redgrave is survived by her three children and extended family.   Have a look at Lynn’s life in pictures here.
