Actress Jill Gascoine turns 79 today.She is best known for her roles in The Gentle Touch and C.A.TS Eyes in the 80`s and 90`s.She has been suffering from Alzheimer`s disease for several years now and in January 2015 her husband Alfred Molina said that she was in a nursing home and now didn`t recognize who he was most of the time.He also stated she had retreated into her own little world and that he cared for her for 4 years at home but on reflection probably did her more harm than good in doing so.Stating that the house became a "minefield" and that her condition had become "radically worse".Maybe a good Death list pick for next year?Certainly famous enough and arguably poorly enough to be included.

Gently Touched?

Would be a funny tagline!

She isn't a good pick for next year.  But she's a good one for this year ;)

Could that have been the reason you started this thread, since the date is the same?  Or perhaps just a coincidence.

I suppose it was the birthday that sparked both articles, so not such a coincidence really.

Jill Gascoigne's husband provides a helpful update:

They may beg, they may plead, they may argue with my logic

And mention all the things I'll lose that really have no value

In the end they will surely know, I wasn't born to follow
