Angela Lansbury

Happy birthday Angela Lansbury! Today the actress turns 88. She was born in London, England to Moyna MacGill, an Irish actress, and Edgar Lansbury, a wealthy English timber merchant and politician. Her paternal grandfather was the Labor Party leader and prominent pacifist activist George Lansbury. As a young girl, she became transfixed with the world of cinema and in 1940, began her studies in acting.

With a career spanning seven decades, Lansbury has earned numerous awards and nominations, including 5 Tony wins, 3 Oscar nods and 18 Emmy nominations. Just recently it was announced that she would receive an Honorary Oscar for her work in the motion picture industry.
