Lynn Redgrave, a vital and popular member of Britain's Redgrave dynasty, died Sunday night. She was 67 and had waged a lengthy battle with breast cancer.
Speaking on behalf of her children – Ben, Pema and Annabel, who were with her – Redgrave's publicist Rick Miramontez, confirmed to The Associated Press that Redgrave died peacefully at her home in Connecticut.
Launching upon the scene in the early '60s, at the same time her elder (and more flamboyant) sister Vanessa made a splash, Lynn Redgrave earned an Oscar nomination for her turn as a gawky Bridgit Jones prototype in 1966's Georgy Girl. She received another nomination for her supporting role as the stunned housekeeper in 1998's Gods and Monsters.

Liam Neeson, whose wife Natasha Richardson died in March after a skiing accident, recently said he and his two sons are taking each day as it comes.
At a party Monday night to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the theater magazine Playbill, Richardson's aunt Lynn Redgrave echoed Neeson's sentiments.
"Well, we just go on, day by day," the actress, 66, said. "We remember her every day, we'll never forget. She was a bright, bright light in our lives."
