Tracy Reed [1942-2012]

It's FAB FRIDAY, but it arrives with little fanfare and a certain tinge of sadness as we look at one of the bright, shining stars from the world of Gerry And Sylvia Anderson and beyond to hail from England.

English actress Tracy Reed [1942-2012] passed away in early May. She was the object of desire for many men through the years in her film and TV appearances.

Reed was the featured FAB FRIDAY photo not once but twice here at Musings Of A Sci-Fi Fanatic following timely coverage in February of her major guest starring role in UFO, Episode 7, The Dalotek Affair.

The ever beautiful Reed co-starred in Series One of Man Of The World [1962]. She was once considered a replacement for Diana Riggs in The Avengers. Of course, she was renowned for her role as Miss Scott in Dr. Strangelove Or: How I learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb [1964]. She also appeared in the spy comedy Casino Royale [1967]. Reed was also noted as Miss Foreign Affairs in a nude photo for Playboy [1962]. British, brunette beauty really never looked better than the gorgeous Tracy Reed.

Reed passed away May 2nd of liver cancer at age 70 in West Cork Ireland. She will indeed be sorely missed by those friends and family closest to her.

This respectful update comes by way of Ladypama who visited a previous FAB FRIDAY Photo post noted above. I wanted to post this unfortunate news last FAB FRIDAY, but had some difficulty finding information corroborating Reed's passing, but that has since been verified this week.

Rest in peace Ms. Reed. You were a FAB beauty!

Oh no. This is awful, I've been a long time follower of her work and I cannot put into words what I feel right now.

She was a beautiful lady.

I'm sorry to hear Tracy Reed is gone. She was a little treasure. BTW I've given you a Versatile Blogger Award because I grok your sci fi musings. Congratulations from Spacerguy

It definitely caught me by surprise. What a beautiful woman.

Thank you for the nod Spacerguy.
