Evans made her film debut in 1915, but dropped film roles for over three decades to concentrate on stage roles. Her first stage appearance was in 1910 as Viola in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the first of over 150 roles over a six-decade career, including roles with the Old Vic Company, which she joined in 1925. She returned to films in 1949 and found steady work in movies and TV thereafter. Evans was nominated for three Oscars for her roles in Tom Jones (1963), The Chalk Garden (1964) and The Whisperers (1967). She was made a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1946.
