The late actress's agent, Ms. Blond, in her statement, said, "We are desperately sad to have lost not only a wonderful actress, whose stage and screen career, spanning over 50 years, was so extraordinarily varied, from Till Death Do Us Part to Sherlock, as well as performance in West End, At the Old Vic, and National Theatre, but also a wickedly funny, elegant, graceful, kind and constant friend."
