Maggie Smith


      Throughout her career, Maggie Smith has been admired for her remarkable technique, on both stage and screen. She has the ability to project a quality of deep emotion (whether comic or tragic) balanced by an innate reserve that combines the appearance of steely control and a hint of something approaching hysteria.

      She started her career at the Oxford Playhouse Theatre with Frank Shelley, and made her first film in 1956. In 1969 she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as an unorthodox Scottish schoolteacher in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. She was also awarded the 1978 Academy Award for Best Supporting Female Actress for her role as a brittle actress in California Suite. Other notable roles include the querulous Cousin Charlotte in the Merchant-Ivory production of A Room with a View and a vivid supporting turn as the aged Duchess of York in Ian McKellan's film of Richard III. Given the international success of the Harry Potter movies, she is possibly most widely known to filmgoers for her work as Professor Minerva McGonagall.

      Onstage, she has played the title character in the stage production of Alan Bennett's Lady in the Van and starred as Peter Pan in Sir J. M. Barrie's fairytale story Peter Pan. She won a Tony Award in 1990 for Best Actress in a Play for Lettice and Lovage, starring as an eccentric tour guide in an English stately home.

      She has been married twice. She married Sir Robert Stephens on June 29, 1967, at the Greenwich Registry office and had two sons with him: actors Chris Larkin (b. 1967) and Toby Stephens (b. 1969), both of whom were born at Middlesex Hospital. She and Sir Robert divorced on May 6, 1974. She then married Beverly Cross on August 23, 1975, at Guilford Registry office. The marriage ended with his death on March 20, 1998.

      She has received numerous honours throughout her career, culminating in a DBE in 1989 at age 55.
