Peaky Blinders star Helen McCrory dies at 52

Peaky Blinders star Helen McCrory passed away on Friday, April 16, 2021, according to a report from BBC.

Damian Lewis, McCrory’s husband, announced McCrory died after “an heroic battle with cancer.”

We shared Lewis’s statement below.

McCrory is best known for roles in the Harry Potter movies, the BBC-Netflix series Peaky Blinders, and a number of other roles in James Bond movies and other popular franchises. In the Harry Potter movies, McCrory starred as Narcissa Malfoy, the mother of Draco Malfoy and wife of Lucius Malfoy. She had a prominent role in the final three movies, starting with Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, the sixth movie of the franchise.

In Peaky Blinders, McCrory starred as Aunt Polly in all five seasons of the hit series to date. Peaky Blinders has been renewed for season 6. It will be the final season of the series.

Will Helen McCrory be in Peaky Blinders season 6?

If there’s one character in Peaky Blinders all fans love, it’s McCrory’s Aunt Polly. McCrory has appeared in every episode of Peaky Blinders so far.

According to a report from Mirror, McCrory was going to return for Peaky Blinders season 6, which just started production this spring after a lengthy delay because of the pandemic.

Mirror reported that creator Steven Knight told fans that Aunt Polly would be back in season 6 after McCrory had debated leaving the series prior to the end of the series.

As the Mirror report mentions, it’s unclear if McCrory had filmed any scenes for season 6.  We’ll just have to wait to find out if McCrory will be involved.

Our thoughts are with Lewis and McCrory’s family and friends during this time.

We’ll share any news about Peaky Blinders season 6 as soon as we find out. The release date for Peaky Blinders season 6 has not been announced yet.
