TV legend Angela Landsbury who portrayed Jessica Fletcher on “Murder, She Wrote” has died at 96.
She died peacefully in her sleep at her Los Angeles home just five days shy of her 97th birthday.
The British-born actress enjoyed a seven-decade career, and received an Academy Award nod for her feature debut, 1944’s Gaslight.
After being nominated twice more, Lansbury was finally given an honorary Oscar in 2013.
A star of stage as well as screen, the vocalist earned five Tonys, but she always said it was Murder, She Wrote that brought her worldwide attention, a role that also brought her Emmy nominations and four Golden Globes.
The popular “Murder She Wrote” airs on our sister station Vision TV.
