Kate O’Mara in her last-ever interview, with Misty Moon 10/19/13, on her good friend Colin Baker’s reaction to her playing the Rani…. and her revenge XD
We’re sad to report the death of Kate O’Mara, who played renegade Time Lord the Rani on Doctor Who.
"A shining star has gone out and Kate will be dearly missed by all who knew and have worked with her," said agent Phil Belfield, who labelled the actress "extraordinary".
On hearing the news of her death, Doctor Who co-star [Colin] Baker tweeted: “Oh my goodness. Kate O’Mara is no longer with us. Sad sad news. A delightful, committed and talented lady and actress. We are the poorer.”
The actress last posted a message on Twitter on 17 March.
"Thank you so much for your kind tweets," she wrote.
"It’s both humbling and completely overwhelming to read all of your messages. Much Love x." (x)
