UK actress, Hilary Heath has died from coronavirus complications.
The movie star and producer, popular for her work in Witchfinder General and Wuthering Heights, gave up at the age of 74 last week.
According to her godson, Alex Williams, Hilary Heath was a force of nature and he is saddened at the reality that she is no longer on earth.
He added that Hilary had several careers and she did well to re-inventing herself as a producer along the line.
“We lost my wonderful Godmother Hilary Heath to Covid-19 last week. Hilary had many careers, starting out as a screen and stage actress in the 1960s and 1970s, and then re-inventing herself as a producer in the 1990s, making films like Nil by Mouth (Gary Oldman) and An Awfully Big Adventure (Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman).
“Her most remarkable re-invention came in her mid-60s, when she won a master’s degree from Oxford in psychology and became an addiction counsellor, specialising in CBT. She worked at clinics all over the world, often for free, often with very deprived and distressed individuals, and she regarded this as her most valuable work by far. She was a force of nature, and I can’t bear it that she is no longer with us.”
