The classic actresses were the organic engine of the Hollywood industry. We've started to lose them one by one and nothing is more devastating than that in media. Here, we mourn for another icon of the 60s.
Sylvia Miles was nominated for an Oscar two times. Both were accounted for her supporting roles in 1969's Midnight Cowboy and 1975's Farewell My Lovely. In the former movie, she had only performed for about 6 minutes and in the latter one, 8 minutes. That was the level of her brilliance.
She also got bigger projects like Wallstreet: Money Never Sleeps, Zero To Sixty, Shalimar and many more.
Expiry at 94
According to the New York Times, the legendary actress who was also famous as a party scene fixture has passed away on Wednesday, June 12. She was currently residing at her home in NYC. TMZ reports revealed that she took her last breath in the back of an ambulance while rushing for the hospital.
The news of her death was confirmed by her two friends: a journalist, Michael Musto, and an actress, Geraldine Smith. She was 94 and presumably died from the health complications of old age. Sylvia had no children, but was married three times, and all were ended in divorce.

She was a one of a kind actress. She was great in “Midnight Cowboy”,”The Funhouse” and many might not remember her role as “Muriel Goldman” on Miami Vice...she aced that role. Very memorable episode. She was hilarious. RIP.— Barth Gimble II (@GimbleIi) June 12, 2019
#RIP Sylvia Miles. She spent 10 days rehearsing w/ Jon Voight for their 'Midnight Cowboy' sex scene: "Jon would come to my apartment on Central Park South dressed in cowboy hat, jeans and boots. My neighbors thought I had this cowboy toyboy. If only!" https://t.co/SnFdwR6TLg— Mike Barnes (@MikeBarnes4) June 12, 2019
