Two-time Oscar nominee Lynn Redgrave has passed away at the age of 67 after a long battle with breast cancer.

Redgrave, who was sister to Vanessa Redgrave and aunt to Natasha and Joely Richardson, died in her Connecticut home on Sunday night, her children announced in 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."
