Biography - A Short Wiki

American actress who had her breakthrough role in Anatomy of a Murder in 1959. Her other well-known films include Days of Wine and Roses and The Omen.

Her father, Francis Edwin Remick, owned a department store.

Remick was married to producer Bill Colleran from 1956-1968. They had two children (Katherine Lee Colleran and Matthew Remick Colleran). She was married to her second husband, William Rory “Kip” Gowans, from 1970 until she died in 1991.

What was Lee Remick’s cause of death?

In the spring of 1989, Remick was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Tumors had been found on her kidneys and lungs after she fell ill while making a film in France. She expressed the following sentiment:

“You think you will be healthy all your life and then it hits you. Then you get angry. And then you say to yourself ‘I’m going to make it. I’m a fighter.'”

After the cancer went into remission in 1990, the actress was named for the role of Catherine’s mother in the TV miniseries Young Catherine. The treatments, mostly at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, were “drastic and horrible and successful,” she said, “and now I’m back.” But she was never cast for the role as the cancer returned and her condition worsened.

Although frail, the actress insisted on leading a normal family life with her husband Kip and children during her final months. In one of her last public appearances on April 29, 1991, she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

A close friend said doctors ended all treatment so she could die peacefully. Remick died at her Brentwood home after a two-year battle with the disease on July 2, 1991, at 55.


The actress was cremated, and her ashes were given to family or friends.
