British comedic icon Anna Karen dies in London house fire at age 85

Born in Durban, South Africa, Karen knew at age 6 that she wanted to act, according to an obituary in The Guardian. After her father died, Karen, her mother and sister moved to London when she was 16, and she stayed there even after her family moved on.
