Maggie Smith Maggie Smith In Harry Potter Films A Young Maggie Smith


One of the most beloved comediennes of London's West End theaters, Dame Maggie Smith never managed to find a niche in cinema truly befitting her talents. Her early roles were technically interesting and she seemed to be molding herslef effectively as a popular type: the independent-minded, witty, self-possessed single English lady, probably much sexier than she at first appears. This was best incarnated in the music hall singer she played in Oh! What a Lovely War (1969).

On the strength of this work, she landed two plum starring roles. She was the lead in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969), and the carpe diem modernism of the virginal girls' school teacher suited the tradition-breaking morality of the era. Yet, strangely, Smith does not project what she might have about this fascinating character: her own desperation at the prospect of being permanently bypassed by Eros. An Academy Award for Best Actress was her reward. The second lead role was in the Graham Greene adaptation Travels with My Aunt (1972), displacing an unhappy Katharine Hepburn, which won her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

Smith remained adept at the brilliantly executed cameo, as in Neil Simon's California Suite (1978), another Oscar-winning part, this time for Best Supporting Actress. Otherwise she has been part of the British brigade's usual suspects, playing well, but with limited interest, in productions ranging from stagy Agatha Christie films such as Death on the Nile (1978) to the Harry Potter films. Sadly, Smith's best screen performance was for Alan Bennett's seldom-seen Talking Heads (1987), a TV anthology of monologues; her richly textured performance as a bitter woman hints at the even more illustrious film career that has eluded her.

"One went to school, one wanted to act, one started to act, and one's still acting."

In 2008, it was reported that she was fighting breast cancer. She has had a tumor removed and undergone chemotherapy.
