Rest well Sister Sarah,rest well ..Jean Simmons has passed away
LOS ANGELES Jean Simmons, whose ethereal screen presence and starring roles with Hollywood's top actors made her a mid-century film icon, has died at age 80.
The actress, who sang with Marlon Brando in "Guys and Dolls;" costarred with Gregory Peck, Paul Newman and Kirk Douglas; and played Ophelia to Laurence Olivier's Hamlet, died Friday at her home in Santa Monica, her agent Judy Page told the Los Angeles Times. She had lung cancer.

2. That's too bad - one of our great actors. Her bit in Star Trek:TNG was pure brilliance.
Especially there was so much screen time of her and Patrick Stewart - wonderful scenes. That's what brilliant acting looks like.
