Angela Brigid Lansbury, CBE (born 16 October 1925) is a British-American actress and singer in theatre, television and films. Her career has spanned seven decades and earned an unsurpassed number of performance Tony Awards (tied with Julie Harris and Audra McDonald), with five wins. Born in East London to actress Moyna MacGill and politician Edgar Lansbury, in 1940 she moved to New York City, where she studied acting. Moving to Hollywood, Los Angeles in 1942, she secured her first cinematic roles, ''Gaslight'' (1944) and ''The Picture of Dorian Gray'' (1945), earning two Oscar nominations and a Golden Globe Award. She expanded her repertoire to Broadway musicals and television in the 1950s and was particularly successful in Broadway productions of ''Gypsy'', ''Mame'' and ''Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street''. Among her other films are ''The Manchurian Candidate'' (1962), ''Bedknobs and Broomsticks'' (1971), ''Beauty and the Beast'' (1991), and ''Anastasia'' (1997). Lansbury is perhaps best known to modern audiences for her twelve-year run starring as writer and sleuth Jessica Fletcher on the American television series ''Murder, She Wrote'' (1984–1996). Her recent roles include Lady Adelaide Stitch in the film ''Nanny McPhee'' (2005), Leona Mullen in the 2007 Broadway play ''Deuce'', Madame Arcati in the 2009 Broadway revival of the play ''Blithe Spirit'' and Madame Armfeldt in the 2010 Broadway revival of the musical ''A Little Night Music''. Lansbury has won five Tony Awards, six Golden Globes and has been nominated for numerous other industry awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress on three occasions, and various Primetime Emmy Awards on eighteen occasions.Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
