Edith Evans was an English actress.


Born in Pimlico, London, Evans began working as a milliner before taking drama classes and eventually making her stage debut with the Streatham Shakespeare Players in Twelfth Night. Despite often having small roles she frequently attracted the attention of the critics and acheived major recognition by the 1920s, a standout performance coming with The Way of the World.

In the 1940s she made a return to film, having previously appeared in silent pictures, and even received an Oscar nomination for her part in The Whisperers, but remained most famous for her roles on the classical stage, most memorably that of the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet.

Evans remained consistently successful until she passed away in 1976.


Evans gave only one singing performance, in The Slipper and the Rose: The Story of Cinderella, as the Dowager Queen.
