Biography

Heir to the Redgrave name, one of the most distinguished theatrical legacies in the world, Jemma Redgrave is the granddaughter of Sir Michael and Lady Rachel, the daughter of Corin, and the niece of Vanessa and Lynn. Although her profile in the US has not yet reached the level of her first cousin, Natasha Richardson, Redgrave nevertheless has begun to make a name for herself in leading and supporting roles in films and TV in the 1990s. Redgrave studied at LAMDA, and then took to the stage, first performing in a production of "Lady Windemere's Fan" in Belfast, Northern Ireland. She then performed on London's West End in a variety of new and classic roles, including Emily in Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" with Alan Alda and Irina in a revival of Chekhov's "The Three Sisters", co-starring her aunts Vanessa and Lynn.

Bonus Trivia

.

"The only reservations I had about acting is that I didn't know whether I had an aptitude for it." --Redgrave quoted in Daily NewsS, April 24, 1996.

.

"Growing up in a family that's had such a hard time with the press makes you mistrustful early on. I suppose because the papers were interested in what my politics were, and what my relationship with my father was like, I thought they would try and get at him through it. The other day there was something about me in The Daily Mail, and instead of saying daughter of Corin 'Trotskyite' Redgrave, they wrote Corin Redgrave, left-wing campaigner. So there may have been a shift. Perhaps I don't need to be so careful now." --Jemma Redgrave to the Times of London, December 26, 1998
