Biography

A scion of the famous acting family, Corin Redgrave maintained the lowest profile as well as the longest periods of inactivity, compared to his more famous sisters, Vanessa and Lynn Redgrave. Nevertheless, he amassed a respectable list of stage credits as well as numerous key supporting roles in British features. Redgrave's first professional stage work was as director of "The Scarecrow" at the Royal Court Theatre in London, and by the next year, he portrayed Lysander in the Royal Court's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." By 1963, he had crossed the Atlantic to appear on Broadway in a supporting part in "Chips with Everything." Redgrave's feature film work began with a turn as Roper in Fred Zinnemann's "A Man for All Seasons" in 1966. Many of his other film roles were in decidedly British works, such as the remake of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" (1968), directed by then brother-in-law Tony Richardson, and Sir Richard Attenborough's heralded "Oh, What a Lovely War" (1969).
