Actress and Film Director Margaret Whitton died on Sunday at the age of 67. 

The Major League star passed away peacefully at her home in Palm Beach, Fla., after a short battle with cancer, Variety reports. 


Whitton began her acting career in “Baba Goya,” an off-Broadway show in 1973. Her first major on screen role came in 1986 when she starred as Molly in “9 ½ Weeks,” alongside Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger.
