Glynis Johns, the Tony-winning actress remembered for playing Mrs. Banks in the classic film Mary Poppins, has died at 100.
A versatile, husky-voiced star whose career spanned eight decades, Johns was one of the last surviving actors of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Johns, who had recently celebrated her 100th birthday, died at an assisted living home in Los Angeles, reportedly of natural causes.
“My heart is heavy today with the passing of my beloved client Glynis Johns,” her manager Mitch Clem told The Guardian. “Glynis powered her way through life with intelligence, wit and a love for performance, affecting millions of lives.”
