      Phyllida Law

      Phyllida Law

      Highest Rated: 92% Before the Rain (1994)

      Lowest Rated: 26% Leo Tolstoy's Anna Karenina (1997)

      Birthday: May 8, 1932

      Birthplace: Glasgow, Scotland, UK

      A well-versed Scottish actress, Phyllida Law may perhaps be best-recalled for her appearances alongside daughters Emma Thompson and Sophie Thompson in such features as "Peter's Friends" (1992) and "Emma" (1996). She had established herself, however, as a fine character player on the British stage in roles ranging from the classics ("The Merry Wives of Windsor") to musical comedies (the London production of "La Cage Aux Folles") to contemporary plays ("Noises Off"). Law twice acted onstage with Sir Alec Guinness in "A Voyage Round My Father" (1971) and "Habeas Corpus" (1973).
