British actor Billie Whitelaw dies aged 82

British actress Billie Whitelaw, famous for her intense collaboration with playwright Samuel Beckett who wrote several roles for her, died on Sunday aged 82, her son told the BBC. 
Described by Beckett as the “perfect actress”, Whitelaw became the playwright’s muse and they created a series of experimental performances together. 

One of the most famous was in a Beckett’s monologue “Not I” in which only her mouth was visible to the theatre audience. “This relentless mouth that wouldn’t let go”, she told a later interview.
