Anna Massey: Veteran actress passes away at 73
Actress Anna Massey has died at the age of 73.
The star's agent confirmed the news of her passing today.
Massey's agent said: "She will be remembered as a loving wife and mother, a cherished grandmother, a generous colleague and, always, a consummate professional. She will be greatly missed."
Including Alfred Hitchcock's 1972 film 'Frenzy', a 1986 TV adaptation of 'Hotel du Lac' and 'Possession' with Gwyneth Paltrow, Massey featured in a number of TV and film roles.
The talented actress also appeared in Michael Powell's controversial 1960 movie 'Peeping Tom', Oliver Parker's 2002 take on 'The Importance of Being Earnest' and the 2008 BBC adaptation of 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles'.
Massey also starred in 'Sauce for the Goose', the opening episode of the second series of Jimmy McGovern's 'Moving On' dramas, last November.
In 2004, Massey was given a CBE for her services to acting.
