Welsh actress Angharad Rees has died after a long battle with cancer, her family has said. Ms Rees, who starred in BBC drama series Poldark in the 1970s, was 63.
Ms Rees played Demelza in Poldark, a costume drama based on the novels written by Winston Graham and first broadcast in the UK between 1975 and 1977.
She also had a role in cult classic Jack the Ripper film Hands Of The Ripper and on stage she appeared in A Winter’s Tale, Richard II and Romeo And Juliet.
Her family said she remained an active supporter of the arts and was an honorary fellow of Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
