London (ANI): Underworld star Kate Beckinsale has revealed how
tragically her father, Richard, died in his sleep at their
Berkshire home, while her mother, Judy, was undergoing surgery to
have more kids. Kate recalled that she was just five when the
Porridge star died in 1979, aged just 31.
"I used to pester my mother to have another baby when my father
was still alive. She ended up having an eight-hour operation to
unblock her tubes and things like that," the Daily Express quoted
the actress as saying. "The operation was a success but my father
died while she was having it, so it was really ironic, terrible
timing," she revealed.
Kate has an older half-sister, fellow actress Samantha, from her
father's first marriage to Margaret Bradley.
