Jamaican actress, singer, songwriter Margaret Young has died in America.

Before migrating to California some 27 years ago, Young, a graduate of Holy Childhood High School, had made a name for herself by securing a role in the first season of Lennie Little-White’s smash television series, Royal Palm Estate.

Young  also starred in David Heron’s controversial play, Against His Will, in the 1990s, and also did a number of TV commercials for local and overseas markets before migrating to the United States.
