KC's View:
I know this may seem like an odd obit to write here - Lynley was something of a bit Hollywood player who had a couple of big moments, to the extent that I’m surprised that she didn’t show up in Once Upon A Time … in Hollywood. But I had a bit of a crush on her when I was a teenager, especially because of her roles in the pilots for “The Night Stalker” (with Darren McGavin) and “The Immortal” (with Christopher George).

So I figured, what the hell.
