Peter Wallach says his mother died Tuesday morning at her home in Manhattan, New York, in the US, of natural causes.

Jackson and Wallach were a formidable duo on the stage, starring in a series of plays, including George Bernard Shaw's Major Barbara in 1956 and a hugely successful run of Luv, directed by Mike Nichols, in the mid-1960s.

Their partnership was epic by Hollywood acting-couple standards. They played a married couple together as recently as 2003 in the NBC medical drama ER.
