Rest in Peace - Antonia BirdWhile the name may not immediately jump out at you, Antonia Bird delivered one of our most favorite films here at Dread Central called Ravenous. It’s with a heavy heart we report that she’s been taken from us at the all too young age of 54.

The sad news comes to us from the UK film site Eye For Film. No cause of death has been announced at this time as the news just broke early this morning after Bird passed away in London, England. We’ll keep an eye out for more and update this story accordingly.

In addition to Ravenous, she was much admired for her intense, realistic films, including Priest, Mad Love and Face, for which she won a BAFTA. She also worked extensively in television, making her mark in series like “Casualty.”

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our deepest of condolences to Bird’s friends, family, and constituents. She will sincerely be missed. Godspeed.
