Susan FitzGerald obituary

Versatile actor who brought intelligence and grace to her many roles on the Irish stage

Ice cool on stage, with sharp good looks and a wit to match them, Susan FitzGerald, who has died aged 64, was a distinguished, versatile and much-loved actor over four decades on the Irish stage, mostly associated with the Gate theatre in Dublin. A career in the arts was inevitable from the moment she played the Virgin Mary in the school nativity aged five; her family was full of actors and writers. She was the niece and goddaughter of Geraldine Fitzgerald, the Hollywood and Broadway star from County Wicklow, and a cousin of the novelist Jennifer Johnston (whose father was the playwright Denis Johnston) and the actor Tara Fitzgerald.

There have been only two artistic regimes at the Gate since it was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheál Mac Liammóir, and FitzGerald was employed in both. »
