Her husband, actor Damien Lewis, said on Friday that McCurry died “peacefully at home” after a “heroic battle with cancer”.
Her husband said that British actress Helen Macrory, who starred in the television shows “Peak Blinds” and “Harry Potter”, has passed away. She was 52 and suffering from cancer.
Her husband, fellow actor Damien Lewis, said MacRory died “peacefully at home” after a heroic battle with cancer.
“She died while alive. Fearlessly,” Lewis wrote on Twitter. “God we love her and know how lucky we have been in her life. She is scorched with so much sparkle. Now go, Little One, into the air, and thank you. “
Macrorie was one of Britain’s most respected actors, making her mark by playing a succession of formidable and sometimes frightening women.
He played a crime family with collaborator Voldemort Malkisa Malfoy in the films “Peak Blinds” and “Harry Potter”.
On stage, her roles included the vengeful Greek heroine “Medea” at the National Theater in 2014. At the same theater, she excelled in Terence Rattigan’s “The Deep Blue Sea” in 2016 as a woman caught between a sullen husband and an innocent lover.
While many actors struggled to find soulful female roles in film and television, McCrory played one of them.
In 2016, he said to the Associated Press, “There are a lot of things, about a variety of roles where” all your lines are ‘But what did you do in the work?’ ‘This is very clever, darling.’ ‘How did you do it?’ ‘And what did you do then?’ ”
“Of course, there’s a lot of sexism within the profession,” McCorry said. “But I think you look at it in different ways, and my point of view is to move forward now.”
