Helen McCrory Obituary News: In loving memory of prominent English actress Helen McCrory.
McCrory died of breast cancer at her home in London on 16 April 2021, aged 52. Announcing the death on Twitter, husband Damian Lewis stated that she had died “peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family.” She had kept her diagnosis private and very few people knew of her illness before her death.
The English actress was filming for season 6 of Peaky Blinders at the time of her death. As she could not complete her scenes, the storyline had to be altered, and the production was forced to reshoot certain parts.
McCrory was born on 17 August 1968 in Paddington, London. Her mother, Ann (née Morgans), is a Welsh physiotherapist, and her father, Iain McCrory (born 29 March 1940), is a diplomat from Glasgow; they were married in 1968.
