From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Dame Dorothy Tutin, (April 8, 1930 – August 6, 2001), was a highly-regarded British actress of stage, film, and television. Born in London, she was a talented pianist, but, having decided on an acting career, made her stage debut in 1949. Her unusual looks, as well as her acting ability, led to early success, and she won the role of Cecily in the 1952 film of The Importance of Being Earnest. She married the actor Derek Waring, and they had two children.

Her next major film role was as Lucie in the 1958 film of A Tale of Two Cities, opposite Dirk Bogarde. She continued to divide her appearances between stage, TV, and film, appearing in the 1970 film Cromwell staring Richard Harris and Alec Guinness as Queen Henrietta Maria before playing another Queen in 1971 as Anne Boleyn in the BBC's hit series, The Six Wives of Henry VIII.

In 2000, she was created a D.B.E. ("Dame") by the Queen.
