Damian Lewis has paid touching tribute to his wife, actor Helen McCrory, calling her “beautiful and mighty” in a Twitter note announcing her death at the age of 52 after a private battle with cancer.

“She died as she lived,” he wrote. “Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you.”

After Lewis shared the news of McCrory’s death, fans and fellow actors rushed to pay tribute.

Actor and writer Mark Gatiss said: “Unbearable and unbelievable that Helen McCrory has gone. A genuine firecracker with an aching vulnerability. A wonderful actor and a wonderful woman. Thoughts with Damian and family. RIP.”

“Helen McCrory will be remembered not just for her remarkable stage and screen performances, but also for her selflessness and generosity,” comedian, presenter and actor Matt Lucas tweeted. “She and Damian were the motor driving FeedNHS, working tirelessly during the pandemic to raise millions for others. What a tremendous loss.”
