    Angela Brigid Lansbury

    Mini biography

    British character actress, long in the United States. The daughter of an actress and the granddaughter of a high-ranking politician, Lansbury studied acting from her youth, departing for the United States as the Second World War began. She was contracted by MGM while still a teenager and nominated for an Academy Award for her first film, Gaslight (1944). Two pictures later, she was again nominated for Best Supporting Actress, this time for The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945). Now established as a supporting player of quality, she began a long career, often as "the other woman" in major productions and as the leading lady in lesser films. Her features, while not at all old-appearing, gave her an air of maturity that allowed her to pass as much older than she actually was, and she began playing mother roles, often to players of her own age, while yet in her thirties. She concentrated more and more on stage work, achieving notable success in a number of Broadway plays and musicals, winning four Tony Awards in sixteen years. Although active in television since the early 1950s, she obtained her greatest fame in the 1980s by starring in the light mystery program "Murder, She Wrote" (1984). As Jessica Fletcher, she became known and loved by millions for well over a decade. She also became known for the odd fact of almost annual Emmy Award nominations for the role without ever winning for it. An institution in American theatre and television, she is also an inspiration for the graciousness of her personality, which is often exploited and always admired.

    She did not write the "Murder She Wrote" books, she stared in the TV show, which was based 'loosely' on the works and life of Agatha Christie. This is also the reason why she was hired, she 'looked' the part. She has had a varied career, starting with "Gaslight", an excellent movie, when she was 17. She was born and raised in England and now spends her time in England and America.

    You'd be on the set of coronation street! In theory I guess if nothing ever happend,there would have been no Big Bang which would mean that conditions for existence would not have been created!! In physics isn't there a law that states EVERY ACTION HAS AN EQUAL AND OPPOSITTE REACTION?? Therefore if there was no initial action,evoloution would not exist.... Cool! Existential questions:)

    Angela Landbury-I don't believe that she "wrote" the novels, but starred in the TV show. Not sure, but think she is still alive & kicking.

    She didn't write the books, only starred in the movies/shows. She's still alive but hasn't done much lately.
