Quote for the Day: Dame Maggie Smith


On seeing her son Toby Stephens appear naked in the television adaptaion of The Camomile Lawn:

"I hadn't seen Toby's willy since he was about two, so you can imagine the terrible shock of it all!"

- Maggie Smith (1934 - )

English actress who made her stage debut in 1952 and has had an extensive, varied career in stage, film and television spanning over sixty years. She has appeared in over 50 films and is one of Britain's most recognisable actresses, most recently having played Minerva McGonagall in the highly successful Harry Potter film series (2001–2011) and Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, on Downton Abbey
