British actress Susannah York – one of the most memorable film faces of the 1960s – has died from cancer aged 72.

She achieved international fame in a string of classic movies and starred alongside a host of legendary actors including Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando and Peter O’Toole.

York was best known for her roles in A Man For All Seasons and They Shoot Horses – Don’t They, for which she received an Oscar nomination.

Her son, actor Orlando Wells, told The Sunday Telegraph that York died yesterday from advanced bone marrow cancer.

“She was an absolutely fantastic mother, who was very down to earth,” Wells said.
