Sylvia Miles

9 September 1924 to 12 June 2019

An American actress best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in Midnight Cowboy (1969) and Farewell, My Lovely (1975), Miles appeared on screen for less than ten minutes in both movies yet conveyed a deep complexity of character on both occasions. Her other notable credits included Heat (1972), Evil Under the Sun (1982) and Wall Street (1987).
