Personal Quote:

[asked about her favorite portrayal of Jean Brodie] There's a different aspect in every one. Anna Massey and Vanessa Redgrave were really very good, and Zoe Caldwell in New York, they were all brilliant in their ways. But Geraldine McEwan really got the essence of it, probably because she had more time and space in it. She has more scope to express herself.

Trivia:

She became a convert to Roman Catholicism in 1954, something which she later said she decided on very suddenly. See more »
