The actress had been suffering from cancer.
Last week we received the news of another actor who has died at a tragically young age. Her husband, fellow actor Damian Lewis, revealed that the 52 year old had been suffering from cancer.
In Skyfall (2012) she played Clair Dowar MP, who chairs the Parliamentary inquiry hearing at which M appears. The hearing is interrupted when Silva and his men open fire. Outside of 007 McCrory is probably best known on television for Peaky Blinders as well as appearing in a number of Harry Potter films.
