Sondra Locke (1944 – 2018) was an Academy Award-nominated actress and frequent co-star of Clint Eastwood. She was nominated for her screen debut in “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter” (1968), based on the novel of the same name by Carson McCullers.

Locke is perhaps best known for the six films she made with Clint Eastwood, including “The Outlaw Josey Wales” (1976), “Every Which Way but Loose” (1978), and “Sudden Impact” (1983), an installment in the Dirty Harry series. Although they were never married, she and Eastwood were in a serious relationship for over a decade that ended in acrimonious legal battles. She detailed that relationship as well as the ultimately negative effect it had on her career in her autobiography, “The Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly — A Hollywood Journey.”

Her final film, “Ray Meets Helen,” was released in 2017.
