"Acting is not about dressing up. Acting is about stripping bare. The whole essence of learning lines is to forget them so you can make them sound like you just thought of them that instant." - Glenda Jackson

Vanessa Redgrave, Judi Dench, Glenda Jackson & Helen Mirren


Elizabeth R This acclaimed BBC television mini-series Elizabeth R portrayed Queen Elizabeth I (Glenda Jackson) from young princess to aged monarch. Glenda Jackson endured an arduous makeup (not to mention having her head partially shaved) to imitate Elizabeth’s bizarre appearance.


I'm one of the lucky ones. I've got my ticket to see Glenda Jackson play King Lear. Can't believe she's 80 years of age. I'm so looking forward to this, The whole of my 6th Form went to see her in Manchester about 35 years ago. Superb actress.HL
