According to her agent, 87-year-old Oscar-winning actress and former lawmaker Glenda Jackson has passed away.

In the 1970s, Jackson rose to fame on a global scale after taking home Oscars for Women in Love and A Touch of Class and being nominated for two more.

In the BBC miniseries Elizabeth R, she also played Queen Elizabeth I.

She gave up performing to serve as a Labour MP in north London in the House of Commons from 1992 to 2015. Politics was always important to her.

She later made a comeback, receiving a Bafta in 2020 for her performance in the TV drama Elizabeth Is Missing.

In a statement, her agent Lionel Larner said: “Glenda Jackson, two-time Academy Award-winning actress and politician, died peacefully at her home in Blackheath, London this morning after a brief illness with her family at her side.
