Lynn Redgrave was a beloved member of one of our favorite acting families. She was the daughter of legendary British actors Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson; sister of actors Vanessa Redgrave and Corin Redgrave; sister-in-law of director Tony Richardson; and aunt of actors Natasha Richardson and Joely Richardson. But Lynn Redgrave had a powerful talent all her own, and she was a star on Broadway, television, and in film.

Redgrave died May 2, 2010, after a long struggle with breast cancer. We're celebrating her life by watching her work.

One of Redgrave's first movies was Georgy Girl – and she won a Golden Globe for her starring role.

We always love seeing our favorite stars let down their hair a bit and have fun on a game show. Here's Lynn Redgrave holding her own on The $100,000 Pyramid with Dick Clark.

1998 brought Redgrave another Golden Globe-winning role, that of housemaid Hanna in Gods and Monsters.
