Lynn Redgrave apologized for being late for our interview. She'd been unavailable when I called because she was on top of her house, patching her roof.

Redgrave may have been acting royalty, but she was utterly unpretentious and down-to-earth, both in person and in her performances. The actress, who died Sunday after a seven-year battle with breast cancer, left a legacy of courageous performances as ordinary women.
