Sondra Locke Lost Battle Against Breast and Bone Cancer

The actress, who got an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in 'The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter', passed away at the age of 74 on November 3.

AceShowbiz - Actress Sondra Locke has died at the age of 74.

The star reportedly passed away on November 3, 2018 but the news was not reported until Thursday, November 13. According to Radar Online, the cause of death was related to her battle with breast and bone cancer.

Locke earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination in 1968 for her first film "The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter". She continued to appear in film and television roles and frequently collaborated with Clint Eastwood, who cast her in his 1976 film "Western The Outlaw Josey Wales". They would later work together on several of Eastwood's productions - including "The Gauntlet" (1977), "Bronco Billy" (1980) and the "Dirty Harry" film "Sudden Impact" (1983).

The pair had a difficult relationship off screen, with Locke suing Eastwood on two separate occasions due to development deals she alleges the actor and director botched. She later detailed her experiences in the memoir "The Good, the Bad and the Very Ugly", a reference to one of Eastwood's most famed projects.
