Oh my heavens!  What a sad day...

 

She enjoyed a long life, yes, but it is still a great loss when a person is no longer in this realm.

 

Cicely Tyson had a noble spirit.  That is what I admired most about her.

 

May she rest in peace.

Re: Actress Cicely Tyson Passed

she has been in so many wonderful movies, tv shows, and specials. LOVED her in an adaptation of a christmas carol called MS SCROOGE.

may she rest in peace.....she had a long life and hopefully it was filled with love and happiness.

Wonderful, inventive actress.  She really transcended "acting" and became Everywoman in that sublime scene in "Sounder" where she glimpses formerly imprisoned husband Paul Winfield coming toward her in the distance, and runs heedless, pell mell, crying and rejoicing, to meet him half way.   Not a dry eye in the theater, or among any who see that scene....

A great actress who never seemed to age as she got older.  She looked amazingly young well into her 70s.

"Sounder' will be airing this Sunday, on TCM, at 8PM Eastern. It's been on the schedule for awhile.

@Oznell and any other movie fan, 

   Are you aware of, "the rest of the story"?   After filming that intense scene, the director had to approach Ms Tyson and Mr Winfield to ask them to do it again because the cameraman wasn't sure he got it all.  Can you imagine?!  Being the pros they were, they did their best to re-enact the scene as before.  Fortunately, it turned out the camera caught the entire first version.  

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.
