She was always overshadowed by her older sister Vanessa Redgrave, who recently accepted a BAFTA achievement award, and gives an incandescent performance in Summit's commercial two-generation summer romance The Juliet Letters, which also stars her old flame (and current husband) Franco Nero, father of her son Carlo. Redgrave has now lost her sister, along with brother Corin and daughter Natasha, who died of a brain hemorrhage in a tragic ski accident.
Lynn Redgrave's family made a statement:
“Our beloved mother Lynn Rachel passed away peacefully after a seven year journey with breast cancer. 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.”
