Throughout her long and vibrant career, actress Lynn Redgrave was a dogged professional who seemingly worked non-stop, as she went from stage to screen and back again with frequency and ease. Redgrave hailed from one of the most famous performing families, whose roots in theatre stretched far back into her family tree and continued on past her own generation into the acting careers of her nieces Joely and Natasha Richardson. Four short years after making her professional debut in a stage production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (1962), she was in direct competition with her sister, Vanessa, for an Academy Award for her seriocomic performance in "Georgy Girl" (1966). Ever since, Redgrave delighted audiences across the globe, touring in many theatre productions in major cities while constantly working in film and on television. Despite outward appearances, Redgrave fought an ongoing battle with bulimia, which led to perhaps her greatest television exposure as the spokesperson for Weight Watchers from 1984 to 1992. After a long absence from notable feature roles, Redgrave returned to the silver screen with "Shine" (1996), then earned her second Oscar nod for her role in "Gods and Monsters" (1998), which reminded a new generation of the actress' exemplary talents.
