We just saw her as the blind woman Nazi sympathizer last week in Agatha Christie's The Clocks on PBS with David Suchet as Poirot. A wonderful actress.

What a sad loss. I read about it in the New York Times today and realized I have seen her in so many British productions, especially on public television. She was a wonderful actress.

I loved Anna as Miss Prism in The Importance of Being Ernest.

I recently saw her performance in Agatha Christie's The Clocks. But I also remembered her as Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca starring Jeremy Brett. A great actress of our day. I'm deeply sadden by her loss.

I've been watching the 1983 version of "MANSFIELD PARK" for the past few days. I had no idea that she had recently passed away. RIP, Ms. Massey.
