Father dies at 31

19 Mar, 1979

At the age of five, the actress losses her father, British actor Richard Beckinsale, to a sudden heart attack. He was at the height of his career at the time and was a British household name starring in two English sitcoms: Rising Damp and Porridge. Richard was 31 years of age.

I started expecting bad things to happen, that friends will leave, that loved ones will die. It kept building until I had a nervous breakdown when I was a teenager.
