Glynis Johns, who played Winifred Banks in Mary Poppins, has died aged 100.

Johns, who lived in West Hollywood, died of natural causes Thursday at a nearby assisted living facility, her manager Mitch Clem confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

“My heart is heavy today with the passing of my beloved client Glynis Johns,” said Mitch.

“With intelligence, humor and a love of acting, Glynis made his way through life and influenced the lives of millions of people.

“She came into my life early in my career and set the bar very high for how I navigate this industry with grace, class and truth. Your own truth.

“Their light shone very brightly for a hundred years.

“She had a sense of humor that could stop you in your tracks, fueled by a heart that loved deeply and purely.

“Today is a dark day for Hollywood. “We mourn not only our dear Glynis, but also the end of Hollywood’s golden age.”

Johns was born on 5 October 1923 in Pretoria, South Africa, to Welsh parents while her mother – a concert pianist – was there on tour.

A talented dancer, Johns made history when she qualified as a dance teacher at the age of 10.

The Academy Award-winning actress, pianist, dancer and singer was a natural leading actress with a career spanning eight decades.

Johns was the first star to sing Stephen Sondheim’s song “Send in the Clowns,” which she wrote specifically for her silky, husky voice – and Johns won a Tony for it.

In the 1964 musical film “Mary Poppins”, John’s character was Mrs. Banks memorable for her exciting portrayal of the Sister Suffragette.

She was also nominated for an Oscar for her supporting role in 1960’s The Sundowners.

However, in the glittering lights of Hollywood, Johns never forgot her roots and happily starred alongside Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in the Welsh film Under Milk Wood.
