These Hollywood Legends Are Still Alive And Winning Life
Maggie Smith – Essex, 87
Poignancy and classic wit made Maggie Smith such an unforgettable darling on the cinematic stage. Before everyone knew her as Professor McGonagall, she was already a 1950’s comic queen who appeared in over 70 plays and 60 films. Her prolific career has won the elusive ‘Triple Crown of Acting,’ an Oscar, a Tony Award, and Primetime Emmy trophies.
Broadway was Smith’s first love, and she debuted professionally in ‘New Faces of ‘56’. The London stage has brought her Best Actress trophies in stage plays, ‘The Private Ear’ and ‘Virginia’, and even her on-screen move in ‘Nowhere to Go’ was critically acclaimed. Alas, Smith’s handprint earned a place in Leicester’s Squares of British stars for her iconic performances.
