The BBC reports that Diana died in a California retirement home.

Diana was an actress in her own right, and she appeared in plenty of films and TV shows during her huge career, including ‘The West Wing’ and ‘ER’.

She was Kirk’s first wife, and the pair married in 1943 after meeting in New York, while Diana was studying at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York.

They later divorced in 1943, but remained friends and appeared alongside Michael in the 2003 film ‘It Runs In The Family’.

Diana married again, to actor Bill Darrid in 1956, and the couple remained together until his death in 2002.

She then married Donald Webster in 2002.
