Jean Simmons, 1929-2010

We've just seen over the twitterverse that Jean Simmons, perhaps best known to Trekkies as Rear Admiral Nora Satie (retired), has passed away. I also remember her fondly from her role as Varinia in Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus.

I have always liked that particular TNG episode, thanks in great part to Ms. Simmons' regal, entertaining performance. I think she was a heck of an actress. Condolences to her family and loved ones.
