Legendary actress Maureen O’Hara has passed away.

 

One of Hollywood’s first bombshells, a ginger goddess of her times, was best known for roles in The Parent Trap, Miracle on 34th Street and many others. Last year, the Irish-American O’Hara, who held dual citizenship in both Ireland and The United States, received an honorary Academy Award for her “unyielding strength and sudden sensitivity to every role she played.”

Maureen O’Hara first appeared on screen via an Alfred Hitchcock film, Jamaica Inn, and quickly became a fixture on the silver screen, one of the first leading ladies of the movies. With stunning red hair, incomparable presence, and chemistry with several leading men, she started in many films that are still considered classics today. Unbeknownst to many of her fans, O’Hara was also a noted singer, a soprano with a very impressive range and she considered music her first love.

 

Her family issued this statement:

 

“Maureen was our loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She passed peacefully surrounded by her loving family as they celebrated her life listening to music from her favorite movie, The Quiet Man. Her characters were feisty and fearless, just as she was in real life,” the family’s statement continued. She was also proudly Irish and spent her entire lifetime sharing her heritage and the wonderful culture of the Emerald Isle with the world.”
