Seen it mentioned that she was in Skyfall as well and have been wracking my brains trying to work out who she was as I've seen that film a few times. Had to Google it in the end and in all the times I've seen it I've never clocked her as being Polly! Brilliant actress.
So sad, however today some people will mourn a 99 year old more than their own family. Put it in perspective Helen McCrory like many others has been "taken" far too early. I'm old enough to have lost many friends and close family, my mum always said over 70 is bonus years. 52 with two teenage kids is far too young.
