"Carry On" films actress Liz Fraser has passed away, according to reports. She died at the age of 88.

On Thursday, September 6, Fraser was at London's Brompton hospital where she later died of complications following an operation, said her agent according to BBC.

Fraser acted in "Carry On" films including, "Carry On Cruising," "Carry On Regardless, and "Carry On Cabby." She was reportedly dropped from the series of films due to her criticising the way the company marketed their films. But 12 years later, she returned in the 1975's "Carry On Behind" film.

Fraser continued working in the entertainment industry, such as more movies and TV shows. Her cousin Lesley Fernandez-Armesto said that Fraser had been still working up until last year.

"Liz was a fabulous comic talent who played the dolly bird support to leading men... but shone in her own regard and, through, dozens of roles, entertained and brought laughter to millions across the last seven decades," said editor of the British Comedy Guide Aaron Brown.

Fraser, whose real name was Elizabeth Joan Winch, grew up in Southwark which is south of London, and made her film debut in 1955 with "Touch and Go." In 1959, she had her first major role in "I'm All Right Jack" with her role as Seller's daughter.

Fraser had been married twice, first to a salesman named Peter Yonwin, and later to a TV director Bill Hitchcock. She had no children.
