It’s a sad day for Hollywood with the news that Eileen Brennan has passed away, aged 80, from cancer. She was best known for her role as Captain Doreen Lewis in Private Benjamin, playing a hardnosed captain charged with bringing Goldie Hawn (Private Benjamin) into line. Her performance won her an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress and she went on to play the character in the TV series of the same name, winning further accolades.
Brennan isn’t the only loss to the world of acting so far in 2013. Here are some other famous faces who are no longer with us.
