Great line, Demitasse. She was excellent in the Young Indy series, especially in the London & Florence episodes. Now this makes 2 actors who played main, recurring characters that are gone. May Maggie Tyzack rest in peace.

Very sad. She brought a real sense of class to the YIJC.
I also especially enjoyed her performance in the "London 1916" episode when Indy went to visit her before heading off to the War. I always got the impression she was supposed to be older on the show than she actually was in real life; I know that they aged her for the "London" episode, and possibly the earlier shows (with the little Indy, C.C.).
Also had no idea she was in "2001", which I just recently re-watched. I will have to look for her the next time I see this.
She gave such a strenght to the series.
Now Indy's return to London after the Great War has become reality
Such a moving scene after he found out that she died with the music theme in the background
I don't know how I missed this earlier, but I feel bad about coming to it only now, and worse that she's gone, of course. When the show began I didn't think I was necessarily going to care much about Ms. Seymour, but I quickly came to cherish her and all she brought to the series, and Margaret Tyzack was of course a huge part of that.
