Tracy Wright, a wonderful gem of the Toronto theatre and film scene, has died.

It's odd, because I'm not one for obit posts, and I didn't even know her name before I read about it. But I loved just about everything she was ever in, and was quite saddened by the news. I'll very much miss her presence.

I didn't recognize the name, either, but she was referenced by people I know on Facebook, so I looked her up...
I realized she was in one of my favourite Kids In The Hall sketches ("This is crazy." "We're involved in craziness.")

my respects.

Dead from pancreatic cancer. What a way to go.

A short film, with Tracy, made by her partner Don McKellar.

This is terribly sad. She was such an excellent, understated actress.

Really too bad. Met her at the short film festival in Norway years ago, she was very nice.

I'd almost forgotten about the crazy cat lady in Twitch City. Damn.

Oh, nooo.

I loved her in Last Night, which I've been meaning to watch again. Imagine how much fun it would be to have David Cronenberg as your boss at the gas company.

I was really sad to hear the news on the CBC this morning. 50 years old. Jeez.

kyrademon: I loved her in "Me and You and Everyone We Know".

Me too. Of all the roles I've seen Tracy Wright play (and she was great in all of them), that was my favourite. I just loved the scene in the park that they link to at the end of the article.

Tracy's partner Don McKellar's beautiful email to their inner circle of friends was published in Maclean's this week.
