Shirley Anne Field: British actress dies

British actress Shirley Anne Field has died aged 87. Her family told the BBC, among others. The corresponding statement says that the actress died peacefully and surrounded by her family and friends on Sunday. “We will miss Shirley Anne greatly and remember her unbreakable spirit and amazing legacy that spans more than five decades on stage and screen.”

Shirley Anne Field grew up in an orphanage with her brother and earned her first living as a model for pin-up magazines. After her first attempts at filmmaking in the 1950s, she achieved her final breakthrough thanks to the thriller “Eyes of Fear” alongside Karlheinz Böhm (1924-2014). Numerous other films followed until she initially shifted her career to the theater stage at the end of the 1960s. She only returned to the camera in the 1980s. One of her greatest successes during this phase was “My Wonderful Laundromat” with Daniel Day-Lewis (66).
