I have never seen Maggie Smith in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and I am going to have to remedy that! I’ve enjoyed her immensely in the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and its sequel and it’s high time I looked at her other work. I’m glad Robert reminded me of this. I hope you enjoy my Sunday reblog!
You ever discovered an actor or actress late in their acting career and wondered where you’ve been?
That’s how I feel about Maggie Smith.
Let me preface this by saying I’m not an avid movie watcher. Even when I do watch movies, I’m hard pressed to tell you a lot of the actors and actresses names—except for the really famous ones.
Anyway, I watch Downton Abbey with my wife, and we’ve always loved Maggie Smith’s character, Lady Violet. When we first watched the show, I recognized Maggie Smith as Professor McGonagall from the Harry Potter movies.
