    Lynn Redgrave, a member of the famed Redgrave acting dynasty that included sister Vanessa and nieces Joely Richardson and the late Natasha Richardson, has died. She was 67-years old and her passing on Saturday was revealed by her children.

    "Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven-year journey with breast cancer," the children - Ben, Pema and Annabel - said in a statement. "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." I for one will be keeping Redgrave and her family in my thoughts and prayers.

    In addition to earning an Oscar nomination, a Golden Globe and a New York Film Critics Awards throughout her storied career, the lovely and talented Redgrave was a prolific and celebrated actress. She appeared in several movies and many TV shows, including recent appearances on Ugly Betty and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

    A funeral is scheduled for later this week.
