Sondra Locke


Born - 28 May 1944, Madison, Alabama, USA
Died - 3 November 2018

Slender, fragile-looking blonde actress who won an Oscar nomination for her first film, but is best recalled for her personal and professional relationship with Clint Eastwood, a liaison that broke up acrimoniously after 14 years. Born Sandra Smith (Locke was her stepfather's surname), she began her career as wan waifs, but later moved to more assertive roles. After a debut in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter (1968), she was seen in Cover Me Babe (1969), Willard (1971), A Reflection of Fear (1973), The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976), The Gauntlet (1977), Every Which Way But Loose (1978), Bronco Billy (1980), Sudden Impact (1983) and, much later, The Prophet's Game (1999) and Clean and Narrow (2000). She also directed several films, including Ratboy (1986), Impulse (1989) and Do Me a Favor (1997). She died from a heart attack after battling breast and bone cancer.
