Helen McCrory - Dies at 52


1968 - 2021 

So sad to hear of the death of the super stellar actor Helen McCrory who has died from cancer at 52. So young and her wonderful equally super stellar husband said in a heartbreaking statement announcing Helen's death, Damian Lewis wrote: 

"I'm heartbroken to announce that after a heroic battle with cancer, the beautiful and mighty woman that is Helen McCrory has died peacefully as home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family." 

Mrs Malfoy!  Mama Jeanne, Clair Dowar,Polly GrayKathryn Villiers,  Emma Banville,  Lady MacbethOlivia, and Rosalind 

Damien added: "She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you." 
Our thoughts go out to him and their children, Manon and Gulliver.

"I don’t think I’ve ever been interested in any play about the happy, successful, lighter moments of life. I think that’s a very modern, pervasive idea in our entertainment, whether it’s on Instagram or in fiction, to show only the good and the perfect side of yourself. It’s just a lie and it’s very dull, and it’s nothing that anyone should even strive for." - Helen McCrory
