British actress Hilary Heath, who appeared in Witchfinder General and Wuthering Heights, died last week after contracting the deadly COVID-19. The tragic news was confirmed by her godson Alex Williams on Facebook.
In a heartfelt post, Alex revealed that his godmother had died from coronavirus.
He wrote: “We lost my wonderful Godmother Hilary Heath to Covid-19 last week,” he wrote.
“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).”
Alex continued: “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.
