Billie Whitelaw in The Omen

Billie Whitelaw, star of stage and screen over a remarkable 65 years, has died at the age of 82. A hit with colleagues and audiences alike, she progressed from The Secret Garden and Dixon Of Dock Green to lend her talents to films including Frenzy, The Omen, An Unsuitable Job for a Woman, The Krays, Quills and Hot Fuzz. She won two BAFTAs and was also much admired for her stage work, through which she became the muse of Samuel Beckett, and for her voice acting, which included extensive work for radio and fantasy film The Dark Crystal.

Whitelaw died in a London nursing home. She is survived by Matthew Muller, her son by actor and writer Robert Muller. »
