Kiss Me Kate actress Kathryn Grayson dies

Friday February 19, 2010

Singer and movie star Kathryn Grayson has passed away at the age of 88.

Born in 1922, Kathryn was best known for her role in Kiss Me Kate - a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.

Classically trained as a soprano, the glamorous star had planned a career in opera before she was approached by MGM at the age of 15.

Kathryn died on Wednesday at her Los Angeles home.

"She was a lady of class and quality, with the greatest sense of humour conceivable," her long-time secretary and companion Sally Sherman says.
