R.I.P. Helen McCrory

British actress Helen McCrory known for playing Narcissa Malfoy in the final three Harry Potter films and Aunt Polly in the BBC drama Peaky Blinders died at 52 due to cancer. She also appeared in numerous films like Skyfall, Hugo, and The Queen. She had actually originally been cast as Bellatrix Lestrange in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix but could not do the role since she was pregnant and was unable to do a wand fight. Helena Bonham Carter replaced her in the part and she later joined Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince as Narcissa Malfoy. R.I.P.

When will they stop? Never, because that's what living things do.

Sad, and way too young. Scary to imagine having that happen and only have ten years left, but not know it. Don't see mention of it, wonder what kind of cancer she had.

Now I remember the first place I saw her, as Villefort's wife in the 2002 The Count Of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel, may she rest well in heaven.
