Actress Deborah Raffin has died in Los Angeles, aged 59.
The Touched By Love star passed away in hospital on Wednesday (21Nov12) after losing her battle with leukaemia, one year after she was diagnosed with the blood cancer.
Raffin began her career in the 1970s with roles in films including 40 Carats, The Ransom and Once Is Not Enough with Kirk Douglas, and she landed a Golden Globe nomination for playing a caretaker in the 1980 drama Touched By Love.
She is also said to have been the first Western actress to embark on a promotional film tour of China after her movie Nightmare in Badham County became a box office hit in the Far East.
Raffin also ventured into business in 1985 when she founded the audiobook firm Dove Books-on-Tape with her then-husband, music producer Michael Viner.
Hollywood legends including Burt Reynolds and Sir Roger Moore were among the stars who narrated audiobooks for Dove.
A memorial service for Raffin will be held on Sunday (25Nov12) in Culver City, California, according to the Los Angeles Times.
