Redgrave, who made her stage debut in 1957 and her film debut in 1958, became a distinguished member of the Stratford-Upon-Avon Theater Company before returning to films in 1966 in A Man For All Seasons. Redgrave, the daughter of distinguished actor, Sir Michael Redgrave, and sister of actor Corin Redgrave and actress Lynn Redgrave (with whom she appeared in the 1991 remake of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?), was married to director Tony Richardson from 1962 until their divorce in 1967.
