Oscar nominee Sondra Locke dies of cancer at 74

Sondra Locke

Locke, who was nominated for an Academy Award for her first film role in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, died on November 3, according to Variety. Radar Online obtained Locke's death certificate from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health.

There has been no prior media coverage of her death, though earlier this week, filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson posted an Instagram story consisting of Locke's film stills and the message "RIP Sondra Locke".

It is not clear why it took almost six weeks for her death to come to light.

However, her big break was when she starred alongside Clint Eastwood in the 1975 film The Outlaw Josey Wale.

Petite in stature and appearing younger than her years, Sondra Locke was 23 when she won a nationwide search by Warners for an unknown actress to play teenager Mick Kelly in its adaptation of Carson McCullers's novel.

But Locke dreamed of developing and directing films herself. According to the death certificate, Locke passed away due to cardiac arrest from breast and bone cancer. She met Eastwood in 1972, and that's when they began dating.

Sondra Locke dead: How did the star die?

Her portrayal of a sensitive 16-year-old earned her the Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress as well as two Golden Globe nominations.

Her career would mirror his for the next several years. "A key fixture in my 70s/80s film memories because of her films with Clint Eastwood & I particularly liked her in the gently nostalgic Bronco Billy".

Locke and Eastwood parted ways in 1989 when she sued The Mule star for palimony after she alleged at the time he had changed the locks of their home and removed all of her belongings. After the couple split, Locke sued Eastwood twice, turning their breakup into a high-profile court battle in the 1990s, according to news reports from the time. "I had never been on a movie set", she told People in 1978 of her film debut, "but it was like coming home".

Locke has a total of 30 TV and movies to her credit on IMDb, including TV stints on Night Gallery, The F.B.I., The ABC Afternoon Playbreak, Kung Fu, Planet of the Apes and Barnaby Jones. A phone number listed in Anderson's name rang without being picked up.
