We will miss her terribly.

Glenda Jackson, a successful performer, and former politician, died at the age of 87, according to the BBC. The celebrity’s agent confirmed on June 15 that Jackson had “died peacefully this morning at her home in Blackheath, London after a brief illness with her family by her side.”

After appearing in the 1969 romantic film “Women in Love,” which earned her the Best Actress Oscar in 1971, Jackson gained notoriety. After four years, she received her second Best Actress Oscar for her portrayal of Vickie Allessio in Melvin Frank’s “A Touch of Glass.” Throughout her lengthy acting career, Jackson has won a ton of other awards and accolades, including an Emmy, a BAFTA, and a Tony.

Jackson was a talented politician as well as a famous actress. After leaving the film industry in 1992, Jackson contested House of Commons elections on behalf of the Labour Party. Despite these differences, Jackson believed there were some similarities between acting and politics. “To tell the truth about who we are is the primary aim of any great theater. Only three questions are posed by Shakespeare: “Who are we, what are we, and why are we?” “And I think politics at its best is trying to figure out how you do create a society where there is genuine equality while acknowledging that we are different,” she remarked in a 2018 interview with Time.

Glenda Jackson’s coworkers in the acting and political worlds have inundated her with sympathy in the wake of the heartbreaking news. The current leader of the Labour Party, Sir Keir Starmer, reportedly released a statement stating, “I was very sad to hear of Glenda Jackson’s passing.” Her absence from our political and cultural life will never be filled. Carol Vorderman, a television figure, also paid tribute to the late actor on Twitter and called him “extraordinary.” Then, for little girls like me, it was awe-inspiring to witness this remarkable woman blossom into a political firebrand. Her tranquility may now be attained, wrote Vorderman.

Jackson, a well-known socialist, supported various important social issues both while she was actively involved in politics and after she left it. The Fix Dementia Care initiative, which works to eradicate discrimination toward persons who have dementia, received her remarkable promise to support it in 2020. The Alzheimer’s Society’s Fix Dementia Care campaign, she stated in a statement at the time, “I feel actually addresses and gives solutions to the issues in the social care system for persons affected with dementia.

Jackson will be remembered for her talent, intelligence, and above all, her unmatched courage. She was strong in many of her beliefs.
