One of the theatre's greatest legends, Sir John Gielgud (1904-2000) spent almost 80 of the 96 years of his life appearing in countless plays that saw him portray every major Shakespearean role. He worked up to a month before his death, performing in over 50 films and numerous television productions when he was not busy with his stage work. He won British Academy Awards for Best Actor in 1954 for the role of Cassius in Julius Caesar and Best Supporting Actor in 1975 for portraying Mr. Beddoes in Murder on the Orient Express.
