Billie in Beckett’s “Happy Days”

Acclaimed actress Billie Whitelaw, famous for her roles on stage and screen, has died at the age of 82.

The Coventry-born star, who was made a CBE in 1991, worked in close collaboration with playwright Samuel Beckett, who described her as a perfect actress.

She died in the early hours of Sunday at a nursing home in London, her son Matthew Muller told the BBC.

“I could not have asked for a more loving mum,” he said.

“She had an incredible career – but first and foremost she was my mum – and that’s who I will miss,” he added.

Plus Joe Cocker.

In shock.
