One of TV’s cherished casting directors has passed away, just a week after being diagnosed with cancer, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
"Emmy-winning casting director Peggy Kennedy died today at Cedars-Sinai" hospital in Los Angeles, the article says.
According to the story, Kennedy and Debi Manwiller won an Emmy in 2004 for their work on "24." That long-running show was particularly praised by many–including TVWeek–for its casting.
Kennedy also worked on "Reservoir Dogs," "L.A. Law," "Chicago Hope," "Level 9," "Wolf Lake," and "Human Target," the article says.
