Character Actress, Except …
What a special lady Angela Lansbury was, and it’s interesting that she says (see video) that the one role in which she wasn’t a character actress was when she played Jessica Fletcher in “Murder She Wrote”. She explains in the video what she means by that.
Professional From the Start
There’s a lot of information here that I never knew about her, for instance that she was nominated for Oscars for her first two motion picture roles. How capable she seemed as an actress, even at 17, when as she said she hadn’t been around the block at all. What a remarkable talent.
Thanks to The New York Times for this special peek at a memorable woman.
