Maggie Smith Biography (2567 words)
Maggie's recognised "serious" stage debut came when she performed in the Oxford University Dramatic Society's Twelfth Night in 1952, but she had already appeared in the Chegwell Players' Children In Uniform, and The Pick-Up Girl at the Playhouse.
It's proof of Smith's all-round schooling in entertainment that, when she appeared in the New Faces '56 Revue at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on Broadway (the latest in a series of showcases organised by former actor Leonard Sillman between 1934 and 1968), she was billed as "a singing-comedienne".
Smith was in torment, seen to be "all tics and nervous affectations".
Maggie Smith - MSN Encarta (225 words)
Margaret Natalie Smith was born in Ilford, Essex.
Smith has an incredible stage presence, classical poise, and impeccable comic timing, all of which have led her to critical success in countless comedy performances in London and New York, including Amanda in Private Lives (1972) and Lady Bracknell in The Importance of Being Earnest (1992), two roles she virtually reinvented.
Smith’s repertoire has also extended to classical theater, including Desdemona to the Othello played by Sir Laurence Olivier (1965).
