From Hoylake to Hollywood: The Life and Work of Glenda Jackson

The latest edition in our Park Walks Talks Series, “From Hoylake to Hollywood: The Life and Work of Glenda Jackson,” takes a new look at one of England's most beloved actors.

The discussion will be led by Erin Mountford, a London-based artist whose experience in photography, theatre, and film production uniquely positions her to unravel the intricacies of Glenda Jackson's formidable character and varied career.

Join Mountford as she discusses her favorite Glenda Jackon performances, from Mary Queen of Scots to The Maids, and delves into the actor's compelling and complex legacy.

In the Spotlight: Glenda Jackson

Glenda Jackson began life in the north of England in 1936. A bricklayer's daughter, her preternatural ambition and determination would see her transcend her humble beginnings in pursuit of a legendary acting career. 

Training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she made her stage debut in 1957, with castings in major motion pictures soon to follow.  

In 1969, Glenda Jackson earned an Oscar for her compelling performance in Ken Russell's audacious adaptation of Women in Love

She earned renown for roles that showcased her distinct blend of fiery intelligence and sexual charisma, solidifying her status as one of the era's most fascinating acting talents, and making her one of the rare few to achieve the American Triple Crown of Acting, with two Oscars, three Emmys, and a Tony.
