Morta Taryn Power, l’addio di Romina: «Non potevo avere una sorella migliore»

La sorella minore di Romina Power aveva 66 anni e da uno e mezzo lottava contro una leucemia

di Redazione Online

Taryn Power, sorella minore di Romina Power, si è spenta a 66 anni. Un anno e mezzo fa le era stata diagnosticata una leucemia. La notizia è stata data da Romina Power su Instagram: la cantante ha postato un messaggio di addio corredato da un video di loro due insieme, in auto. «Mia sorella Taryn ha raggiunto i nostri genitori ieri alle 9:53 a casa sua nel Wisconsin», ha scritto Power, «circondata dai suoi quattro figli e i suoi quattro nipoti dopo

L’artista dedica poi parole struggenti alla sorella: «Ci ha lasciati un essere luminoso, una madre amorevole, nonna eccezionale e una sorella unica e speciale per il suo umorismo, la sua generosità e l’amore che aveva per gli animali e la natura». «Non potevo avere una sorella migliore in questa vita!», aggiunge poi Romina. Dopo il messaggio di addio associato al video, Power ha pubblicato una lunga serie di foto, sempre in memoria della sorella. Scatti che risalgono alla loro infanzia, ma anche foto più recenti di Taryn o ricordi della loro giovinezza. Le due figlie dell’attore Tyrone Power e Linda Christian erano molto legate, sin da piccole.

She died of leukemia.

https://thelifeandtimesofhollywood.com/taryn-power-daughter-of-tyrone-power-dies-at-67-of-leukemia/

She played Dione, the blonde daughter of the alchemist Melanthius (Patrick Troughton) in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger."

And I have to wonder how that movie EVER got rated G - there are several violent scenes in it that are all but guaranteed to give little kids nightmares!

(Troughton died at a convention at which he was guest of honor!)

"Taryn" was a name coined to echo the name by which her father,who wanted
a son,was known...though like Clark Gable he DID wind up having a POSTHUMOUS
son...a half-brother to Taryn.

But the Tyrone Powers,of all their various degrees of power...
I don't think any of them have had the exact same set of names but
they have tended to use "Tyrone Power" professionally.

Surviving now are Taryn's half brother ("Tyrone Jr.") and his son Tyrone Keenan
Power(not an actor yet that I know of).

Taryn's father is generally referred to as "Tyrone Power" and her grandfather
Frederick Tyrone Power,though billed as Tyrone Power in his lifetime,is
most often called "Tyrone Power Sr." (much as Jason Robards Sr. and Noah
Beery Sr. and Lon Chaney Sr. sprouted the "Sr." after their deaths)...but
HIS grandfather William Grattan Tyrone Power,an Irishman,was the first
prominent actor known professionally as "Tyrone Power" and he's now often
called "Tyrone Power I"...but HIS father was the first Tyrone Power in
the traced line,though "a minstrel of sorts" rather than an actor.

(The only son of W.G. Tyrone Power who had "Tyrone" among his names,
however,NOT the father of F. Tyrone Power).

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
