Barbara Hershey

Happy Birthday to

Barbara Hershey

62 today

Barbara Hershey is a seriously talented actress, with a fascinating back catalgue, however somehow she isn't half as popular as she should be. Coming to audience attentions in the late 60's and early 70's, as much for her offscreen lifestyle as her acting technique, she came into her own in the 80's with high profile ventures such as The Right Stuff, The Natural and Beaches. She was also the first person to win 2 consecutive best actress awards at Cannes for Shy People and A World Apart. Next up is Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan which hopefully be a return to the public consciousness.
