Lynn Redgrave, a member of the famed Redgrave acting dynasty noted for her roles in "Georgy Girl" and "Gods and Monsters," has died. She was 67.

Redgrave was the daughter of actor Michael Redgrave, sister of Vanessa Redgrave and aunt of Joely Richardson and the late Natasha Richardson. She first gained fame for 1966's "Georgy Girl," a comedy about an upbeat woman making the most of Swinging London. The role garnered her an Oscar nomination. She was nominated more than 30 years later for "Gods and Monsters," in which she played director James Whale's housekeeper.

Over the decades, Redgrave appeared in several movies and many TV shows, including recent appearances on "Ugly Betty" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."
