The comedy world has lost a genius as news breaks of Victoria Wood's passing at the age of 62 on Wednesday.
The actress' publicist says Wood "died peacefully at her north London home with family" after a "short but brave" battle with cancer.
The Brit's brother expressed his sadness at the news saying that her passing "robbed us of one of the brightest talents of our generation."
In case you aren't aware, Wood gained much notoriety in the '80s and was most-recognized for the BBC sketch Acorn Antiques and comedy Dinnerladies. She won five BAFTAs — two for her ITV drama Housewife 49.
Wood has two adult children with ex-husband Geoffrey Durham — Grace Durham and Henry Durham.
Many fellow industry leaders and comedians have expressed their condolences via Twitter:
This is just heartbreaking.
As we reported, on Tuesday, the Belgian City of Brussels was faced with several violent terrorist attacks that reportedly left at least 28 killed with countless others injured.
Following the attack, Prime Minister Charles Michel asked citizens to remain where they were as the country raised their terror threat to the highest level.
Since news broke of this unspeakable tragedy, many in Hollywood have taken to Twitter and Instagram to send their thoughts to the people of Brussels and to comment on this bout of violence — including Iggy Azalea, Piers Morgan, Alessia Cara, Joel Madden, Hoda Kotb, and many more.

This cast is pretty stacked!
Tyra Banks shocked us all when she announced that she was quitting FABLife just a few months after it began, but now that the daytime talk show has been cancelled, we think the former America's Next Top Model host made the right choice.
That's because it was announced on Wednesday that the 42-year-old supermodel, as well as Jessica Alba, Warren Buffett, Steve Ballmer, and Patrick Knapp Schwarzenegger will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger in the board room this season on The Apprentice!
Tyra will be replacing Ivanka Trump as an adviser for the reality TV show's 15th season, showing that the Peacock Network clearly wants to sever all ties with the Trump name.
So now that we know who will be advising the contestants… who will actually be competing for the title?

The 54-year-old joins the panel alongside Will.i.am, Kaiser Chiefs front man Ricky Wilson, and singer Paloma Faith.
During a battle of who has worked with bigger names, the King Of Everything singer shocked the live studio audience when he revealed HE'S SLEPT WITH PRINCE.
Yeah, that Prince!
According to a source, here's how it went down:
Boy George boasted about working with some of the best in the business:
"I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson."
To which Paloma rebutted:
"Well OK, if we're throwing big soul names out there I've performed with Prince."
And… BG reportedly quipped:
Aside from the fact that they were both on Conan Monday night, the pair both happen to be fans of legendary rock band The Doors!
To prove it, the Culture Club singer and The D Train star performed a spirited cover of The Doors' Hello I Love You!
With The Doors' guitarist Robby Krieger playing with them, Black did his best Jim Morrison impression towards the end with those spikey yells!
