Helen McCrory, British Star of Stage, Film and TV, Dies at 52

 Helen McCrory, the accomplished and versatile British stage and screen actress who played Narcissa Malfoy in three Harry Potter films and the matriarch Polly Gray on the BBC series “Peaky Blinders,” in addition to earning critical plaudits for her stage work, has died at her home in north London. She was 52.

Her death, from cancer, was announced on social media on Friday by her husband, the actor Damian Lewis.

Ms. McCrory was a familiar face to London theater audiences and to British television and film viewers well before she won wider recognition in the Harry Potter movies. She began her career in the theater in 1990, straight out of drama school, playing Gwendolen in a production of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” in Harrogate, Yorkshire. In 1993, the director Richard Eyre, who was the head of the National Theater, cast her in the leading role in his production of Arthur Wing Pinero’s comic play “Trelawny of the ‘Wells,’” for which she earned glowing reviews.

“Helen McCrory, in the title role, perfectly captures Rose’s crossover from a lovelorn ingénue to wounded woman,” Sheridan Morley wrote in The International Herald Tribune.

“I’m much happier as I’ve got older,” Ms. McCrory told The Times of London in 2016. “Age has given me nothing but confidence, security and joy.” She added, “To me, ‘Helen McCrory, 47’ means nothing. ‘Helen McCrory, bad housewife and argumentative after a bottle of gin’ would be much more relevant.”

In recent years she appeared on TV in leading roles in David Hare’s political drama “Roadkill” and James Graham’s “Quiz” and as the voice of a daemon in “His Dark Materials.”

Last year, Ms. McCrory and Mr. Lewis spearheaded a fund-raising effort to provide meals for members of the National Health staff amid the coronavirus pandemic. Their work led to donations of close to £1 million ($1.4 million) to the Feed NHS Scheme. Just a month ago, on March 12, she appeared with Mr. Lewis on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” to discuss the project.

Her illness was not widely known, and her death came as a surprise to most. Complete information on survivors, in addition to her husband and children, was not immediately available.

Fast And Furious 9 It's A Series Of Tubes!

 If a UDP port scan reveals a vulnerability that allows you a root shell, the firewall is not "pretty good" as they state in the first part though. wouldn't a quantum-temporal mainframe just be how time flows within sub-molecular systems? ie exactly the same as how time flows normally? I see what you mean, but even with that addition, it definitely still needs some rephrasing to make sense...and even more rephrasing for it to be something a security expert would actually say. I’m afrad to ask, but isn’t this fairly accurate? Especially for this franchise! They’re basically stating someone blocked all tcp but left an exposed UDP root shell running somewhere on an important… nevermind, got it. Yeah but having root access just sitting there for the taking on an open port isn't "pretty good" or "perfect." Fast and Furious 9 All Casts Signature for Fan T-Shirt Now, if an open port allowed the attacker to talk to a running process with some shitty restri

Nick Castellanos deal on Major League Baseball

Nothing, really. It's a fair contract for a free agent with his skillset, and he's going to be playing in a home ballpark that will play well to his skills. Castellanos is a good hitter, but not a great one, and his only distinctive skill is power. But the Cincinnati ballpark favors a power hitter, and Castellanos is likely to increase his home run output playing there. The Reds realized this, and since they could sign him without upsetting their salary structure, they did so. They're trying to contend now and he should help. The only one that I think it’s not realistic for someone to break is the 511 career pitching wins amassed by Cy Young. No one else, even in Young’s own time, ever had more than 417 (Walter Johnson), and the most by a modern-era pitcher is the 355 of Greg Maddux. Nick Castellanos On Purpose T-Shirt Young pitched in a very different era, where pitchers didn’t go all-out on every pitch, and by all accounts he was a freak of nature anyway—a guy who was abl

Tebow to a one-year deal to play

 Tim Tebow is coming back to the NFL. After a six-year hiatus, the Jaguars plan to sign the former NFL quarterback to a one-year deal, CBS Sports' Jonathan Jones confirmed. As previously reported, Tebow will play tight end for the Jaguars.  Tim Tebow Hes A Winner , 33, recently worked out for the Jaguars and head coach Urban Meyer, who coached Tebow during his record-setting run at the University of Florida. A former Heisman Trophy winner, Tebow went 9-7 as the Broncos' starting quarterback before spending one season with the New York Jets. He then had two uneventful stops with the Jets and Patriots before spending nearly five years in the Mets' minor league system.  Along with playing tight end, Tebow may be asked to serve as a mentor for quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Like Tebow, Lawrence led his collegiate team to a national championship before becoming a first-round pick.  The most important thing for Trevor is to learn the offense, it
