Cambridge Jones Portraits - Glenda Jackson


Glenda Jackson, the British actress who won not once, but twice the Academy Award for Best Actress (in 1969 for Women In Love and in 1973 for A Touch of Class), is finally returning to the scenes after spending the last 23 years running a seat in the British House of Commons.


Jackson, who, during the past years, turned down movies and interview requests during to focus on her second career, abandoned the political life in May 2015 and now, a few months after her 80th birthday, she is coming back to her creative career. She is now narrating a serialisation of Emile Zola stories for BBC Radio 4 and she has described her return to the scenes as “daunting and exciting at the same time”. You can listen to all the available episodes here.
