Yesterday, website Economist.com reported sad news regarding Hilary Dwyer, actress and producer, who appeared as Hilary in Emma Peel episode Murdersville (1967).



https://www.economist.com/britain/2020/04/11/how-covid-19-is-changing-funerals

Laura Foster’s mother, Hilary Heath, wanted to be buried in a red flowery dress, but the current crisis does not permit people to choose the style of their departure. Ms Heath, who died of covid-19, will be cremated as soon as her daughter’s self-isolation is over. The vicar will be the only other person present.

(Laura, daughter of Hilary Dwyer, is or was married to Oliver Charles Foster, only son of Mr and Mrs Simon Foster, of Egton, Whitby, North Yorkshire).


Yesterday, Alex Williams (daughter of animator Richard Williams) did the tribute on her Facebook page:

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.

RIP Sad

Sadly, if we will consider Monday as the first day of the week, then from 30 March to 5 April (last week) Avengers fans lost four persons!
1) Barry Wilsher (Monday)
2. Roger Marshall (Wednesday)
3. Honor Blackman (Sunday)
4. Hilary Dwyer

Sad
