Angela Lansbury

Angela Lansbury (born October 16, 1925) is a British actress and the granddaughter of politician George Lansbury.

She made her film debut in 1944, and has since enjoyed a long and varied career, mainly as a film actress, appearing in everything from Samson and Delilah to Disney's Bedknobs and Broomsticks[?]. Her performance in The Manchurian Candidate as the manipulative mother who turned her son into an assassin won much praise, as did her role as a similarly distant mother in the comedy, The World of Henry Orient[?]. She also played Miss Marple in The Mirror Crack'd.

As Jessica Fletcher in the long-running television series, Murder, She Wrote (1984), she found her biggest success and a worldwide following.
