    • A supporting player and occasional lead of TV and film, Lisa Harrow is far more established as a stage actress in Britain, where she has appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) since 1969.

    • A native of New Zealand, Harrow had many of her better chances in films once she reached middle-age, notably her award-winning turn as a writer whose world is shaken by the arrival of her sister in Gillian Armstrong's The Last Days of Chez Nous and as a troubled woman who mistakes a homeless man for a great film director in Jonathan Nossiter's Sunday (1997).

    • Harrow attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before joining the RSC where she honed her craft in such roles as Olivia in Twelfth Night and Desdemona in Othello.

    • She entered films in 1974 in the Italian-made Il Sorriso del Grande Tentatore/The Devil Is a Woman/The Tempter, a forgotten rip-off of 1972's The Exorcist.

    • She lent support to the kindly veterinarian of All Things Bright and Beautiful (1974; aired in the USA on NBC in 1975), but her subsequent film appearances have been sporadic.

    • Harrow acted opposite then-husband Sam Neill in The Final Conflict (1981), the third part in The Omen trilogy, and co-starred as the matriarch of a troubled family who finds solace with Peter Coyote's stranger in That Eye, The Sky (1994).

    • The small screen has provided the actress with numerous opportunities. Harrow was one of the stars of the syndicated sci-fi series Star Maidens (1977) and had one of her best role in the title role of Nancy Astor, the American-born woman who became a member of Parliament (BBC, 1982; PBS, 1984).

    • She was Wanda, the girl left behind by the future pontiff (Sam Neill) in the 1981 NBC biopic From a Far Country: Pope John Paul II.

    • More recently, Harrow co-starred as the unfaithful wife of a barrister in the short-lived British drama Kavanagh QC (Central Independent Television, 1995).
