Veteran Hollywood actress Jane Powell is dead. She was 92 years old.
Powell, one of the last surviving stars of Hollywood’s golden age, died of natural causes at the home she shared for many years with her husband, fellow actor and publicist Dickie Moore, who died in 2015.
Susan Granger, a friend of Powell’s and a spokesperson for the family, announced the news to various outlets. She said the late actress died peacefully at her home in Wilton, Connecticut on Thursday, September 16.
Actress performed for virtually her whole life as she was marked as a singing prodigy on the radio in Portland, Oregon when she was just 5 years old.
Powell made her first movie at 16 and graduated from teenage roles and co-starred in the lavish musical productions that were a staple of 20th-century Hollywood.
