    Miranda Richardson

  • Miranda Richardson first startled audiences in Mike Newell's Dance With a Stranger, in which she played Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in England. Subsequent roles have confirmed her as an actress of consummate ability and consistency. In 1992, with rave reviews for all three of her performances in Neil Jordan's The Crying Game, Mike Newell's Enchanted April and Louis Malle's Damage, the question was which would be singled out during awards season. The New York Film Critics cited her work in all three films in naming her Best Supporting Actress; she received a Golden Globe for Enchanted April, and was nominated for an Oscar for Damage. In 1995 she received a second Oscar nomination, this time for Best Actress, for her portrayal of Vivian Haigh-Wood, the wife of poet T.S. Eliot, in Brian Gilbert's Tom And Viv.

    Though primarily known for her dramatic roles, Richardson is also a gifted comedic actor, as evidenced in British television series such as Blackadder and Absolutely Fabulous.
