The last of the Gainsborough Girls, British actress Jean Kent, has died aged 92

I'm sad to report the death of Jean Kent, one of the leading actresses of the 1940s and 50s. Apparently Miss Kent died following a fall at her home in Westhorpe, Suffolk.

I'd see her just a couple of years ago at the BFI when she was honoured on her 90th birthday. Here she is talking to her close friend, author and former film critic Michael Thorton:
