Daughter of Stan Laurel dies
Lois Laurel Hawes, the daughter of comedian Stan Laurel, has died aged 89.
Hawes died late on Friday night at a Los Angeles hospital after a long illness, her family said.
Her mother was Laurel’s first wife, Lois Neilson. Laurel and screen partner Oliver Hardy had decades of success.
Laurel played the dim-witted sidekick to the pompous Hardy.
Hawes, pictured right as a child with her father, made uncredited appearances in several of their productions.
She was married to Gone With The Wind actor Rand Brooks and later to actor Tony Hawes.
