Longtime Hollywood TV star was just found lifeless at her home. Praying for the family during this time!
She was known as a Coronation Street favoriteVera Duckworth, acting in the show for 34 years. The wonderful Liz Dawn, tragically died at 77 surrounded by her family and friends.
Her family released a statement about her death sharing that she died peacefully in her sleep. Furthermore, she was born Sylvia Butterfield, and was a nightclub singer before beginning an acting career.
In the beginning she started out with television commercials and guest appearances. Furthermore, it wasn’t until her spot on Coronation street that her career really took off.
She continued to be a part of the cast for 30 years from 1974 to 2008. Meanwhile, she starred as Vera, wife and verbal sparring partner to work-shy, pigeon-fancying Jack Duckworth.
They didn’t have the best relationship, but they loved each other tremendously and it really grasped the hearts of the viewers. It was one thing that kept bringing people back to the show for all of these years.
In the early 2000’s Liz was diagnosed with emphysema. Meanwhile, that’s when Vera was written out of the show in 2008, dying in her sleep. Bill Tarmey, who played Jack, died in 2012.
Little did they know that she would really die in her sleep one day in real life. She was a brilliant character, and a brilliant human over all.
Everyone that knew her loved her. Furthermore, she was an inspiration and is considered an iconic TV legend by many.
Meanwhile, Corrie’s executive producer Kieran Roberts also shared a statement after hearing about Liz death.
“Liz Dawn was a true Coronation Street legend, a brilliant actor and a wonderful person.
“Everyone lucky enough to have worked with Liz during her 34 years playing Corrie icon Vera Duckworth will remember her with huge affection.”
RIP, beautiful. You will be missed.
