Unhappy Actress Alberta Watson Dies at 60 (24, Nikita)

"24" Actress Alberta Watson Dies at 60
by Jennifer Maas

Canadian-born actress Alberta Watson, best known for her roles on "24" and "Nikita", died Saturday. She was 60.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of the luminous Alberta Watson. Alberta died in the arms of her beloved husband Ken on Saturday March 21st at Kensington Hospice after a long and incredibly courageous battle with cancer,” Watson’s agency said in a statement.

On the fourth season of "24" Watson played Erin Driscoll, the new director of the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit who fired Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland).

Her other film/tv roles include:

"Law & Order"
"The Equalizer"
"Buck James"
"La Femme Nikita" and The CW's "Nikita" reboot (which wound up being her last role)
The Sweet Hereafter (1997)
The Prince and Me (2004)
Helen (2009)

That's very sad. I wouldn't have thought she was 60 yet either.

I didn't realize she was 60. Then again, she did play Jonny Lee Miller's mom in Hackers which came out 20 years ago.

With this right above the Emma Watson thread I read this as Emma Watson dies at 24. Lack of sleep is catching up with me I guess.

I am not that familiar with her body of work but 60 is always too young to die

Such a shame, that's no age to go. Always loved her in La Femme Nikita. R.I.P.
