Lynn Redgrave has lost her long battle with cancer. The actress died late Sunday night in her Manhattan apartment, according to a statement issued by her children.

Lynn, sister of Vanessa Redgrave, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 60. She passed away just one month after the death of her brother, Corin Redgrave, and 14 months after her niece, Natasha Richardson, died following a skiing accident.

The Oscar-nominated Georgy Girl star shocked friends when she arrived at her brother Corin’s funeral in London in a wheelchair. Redgrave underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy treatments in New York in 2003.

Our condolences to Lynn Redgrave’s family and friends.
