Actress Lynn Redgrave -- younger sister to Vanessa Redgrave -- passed away yesterday after a 7-year battle with breast cancer. She was 67.

Fans of Ugly Betty, Law & Order: CI, and Desperate Housewives may recognize Lynn as a cameo guest; but the actress was better known for her performances in Georgy Girl and Gods and Monsters -- both for which she received Oscar nominations.

Her sister, Vanessa, is also a well-known actress, starring in films like Mary: Queen of Scots, Mrs. Dalloway, and Mission: Impossible.

Lynn's elder brother Corin Redgrave, died less than a month ago and her niece, Natasha Richardson (Vanessa's daughter) died after a skiing accident in 2009.

What sad, sad news. Our thoughts are with the Redgrave family.
