Tuesday dead English actress Angela Lansbury, who is best known for her acting in many films and musicals, but above all for being the heroine of the television series She wrote the murder. He would have turned 97 on October 16. The family reported his death, writing in a statement that Lansbury “died peacefully in her sleep at her home in Los Angeles at 1:30 a.m.”.
Lansbury has had a career spanning more than 70 years in theatre, film and television. Among the roles she played, we often remember the hugely popular character of Jessica Fletcher, writer and detective heroine in lady in yellow (She wrote the murder, in English), is set primarily in the fictional town of Cabot Cove. In her career, Lansbury has also been a highly regarded film actress: she has represented Ingrid Bergman, Spencer Tracy, Liz Taylor, Katharine Hepburn and Frank Sinatra, among others. He also won the Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement – in 2014 – and 6 Golden Globe Awards.
Over the years, Lansbury has starred in some very important films, such as go and killfrom 1962, Brass knobs and broom sticksfor 1971 and Greatest story ever1965. Lansbury’s acting career began when she was eighteen: she arrived in New York from England to escape the war, and landed her first role in suffering by George Cukor. It was 1944 and Lansbury earned an Oscar nomination for the role. Prior to winning the Lifetime Achievement Award, Lansbury was nominated two more times.
Lansbury has also been a Broadway actress in several theatrical productions, including Mami 1966 and Blythe spirit (“Spirito Allegro”) in 2009, working at the age of 83. For his theatrical roles, he won 5 Tony Awards, the most important American theater award.
But the greatest success came with She wrote the murder. In fact, the series, which first aired in 1984, initially appeared to be a flop, since the plot is considered unattractive compared to other series at the time and geared too toward an older audience. “They offered our condolences even before we went live.” I remember Once Richard Levinson, one of the creators of the series. “We had hoped more for an unforgettable success.” Instead, the protagonist, a widowed mystery writer who for some reason was always involved in crime and intrigue, became a hugely popular character who earned 12 Emmy nominations from Lansbury.
