Janet Suzman

Happy Birthday to

Janet Suzman

72 today

South Africa born Suzman is best known for her stage work, including most of Shakespeare's heroines during her time with the RSC and a professional and personal pairing with Trevor Nunn which led to a number of Evening Standard awards. She's not had a significant film role since 1990's Nuns on the Run.

Suzman will figure prominently in my series NEXT year, a look back to Oscar, 1971. She snagged a spot in the Best Actress race in part due to a lack of good leading roles for women.

I thought she was a worthy "...Alexandra".

It's a baity movie too with a much bigger arc than "Nicolas...", I'll be tuning in to your forthcoming series with deep interest.
