British dramatic actress Susan Fleetwood, specialized in Shakespearean plays and period pieces. Best known for her stage work, she also appeared occasionally on television and in feature films. The younger sister of rock drummer Mick Fleetwood (best known for the group Fleetwood Mac), Susan trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. While there, she earned the school's most coveted honor, the Bancroft Gold Medal. During the mid-1960s, Fleetwood co-founded the Liverpool Everyman. She spent the 1967-68 theater season with the Royal Shakespeare Company and it is there that she became famous. Fleetwood would periodically return to the company throughout her career. She joined the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic in the mid-'70s. Fleetwood made her film debut in David Giles' television-movie adaptation of Hamlet (1972). Fans of the campy sword and sorcery film Clash of the Titans (1980) may recognize Fleetwood in the role of Athena. Just prior to her death from cancer in late 1995, fans were shocked to discover that she had been quietly battling the disease for over a decade while continuing her busy career.
