Billie Whitelaw

Highest Rated: 100% Gumshoe (1972)

Lowest Rated: 38% Night Watch (1973)

Birthday: Jun 6, 1932

Birthplace: Coventry, Warwickshire, England, UK

Praised by playwright Samuel Beckett-who considered her his muse-as "a perfect actress," Billie Whitelaw made an indelible mark on British arts and entertainment from the age of 11 until her death at 82, covering radio, television, film, and theatre. Her noticeable Yorkshire accent was a boon to the rise of social realism, but that did not preclude her from spreading her focus as wide as possible, doing absurdist theatre, horror thrillers, one very famous production of "Othello," and even voicing a Jim Henson puppet.
