Jill Clayburgh, best known to Luke Macfarlane fans, as the actress who played the mother in the play, The Busy World is Hushed, passed away recently from leukemia. Jill has battled the disease for over 20 years.

Jill Clayburgh did both the Off-Broadway of The Busy World is Hushed at the Playwright Horizons in 2006 as well as reprised her role in the LA Theatre Works radio show for The Busy World is Hushed in 2007.

Her presence will be sorely missed.
