Angela Lansbury Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Dame Angela Brigid Lansbury was born on 16 October 1925, in Regents Park, London England, to an Irish mother and English father. As Angela Lansbury, she is a well known singer and actress, who has gained acclaim internationally through her performances on television, and in films and the theatre over almost 70 years in the entertainment industry. During her career as an actress and singer, Angela has won several Golden Globe Awards, Tony Awards and an Academy Award. Now Lansbury is performing more in the theatre, and participates in various other events.

How rich is Angela Lansbury? Recently it has been estimated that Angela’s net worth is over $65 million, however, as she is still performing in theatre, there is a high chance that Angela Lansbury’s net worth will become higher.

Angela Lansbury Net Worth $65 Million

Angela’s mother was an actress so acting was not something new to her. Lansbury started to study acting at Webber Douglas School of Singing and Dramatic Art, after being educated at South Hampstead High School and having decided against a career in music. During this period she appeared in several schools’ productions. Then she was able to be a part of performances of “Lady Windemere’s Fan” and “The Way of the World”. From that time Angela gained more experience and acclaim, dividing her time and work between both sides of the Atlantic, although largely domiciled in the USA. One of Angela’s first roles in movies was “Gaslight”, directed by George Cukor, and also “The Picture of Dorian Gray”, directed by Albert Lewin. These roles added a lot to Angela Lansbury’s net worth. Other outstanding movies that Angela appeared in include “The Private Affairs of Bel Ami”, “The Three Musketeers”, “The Long, Hot Summer”, “The Reluctant Debutante”, “The Manchurian Candidate”, “The Greatest Story Ever Told” and many others. Her latest movies include “Nanny McPhee”, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” and “Heidi 4 Paws”. All these appearance had a huge impact on Lansbury’s net worth. However, Angela has appeared in over 70 films alone, which gives some indication of her real worth.

As mentioned before, Angela has not only appeared in movies, but at various times during her career she also performs in plays, including on Broadway. Some of them have been “Mame”, “Gypsy”, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” and many more. All these musicals and others gained her a lot of success and not only added to Angela Lansbury’s net worth but also made her more famous and acclaimed among other people in the industry.

In addition to this, Angela also appeared in many television shows, among them  “The Star and The Story”, “Genera”; “Electric True Theater”, “Murder, She Wrote”, “Touched by an Angel”, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, “Law & Order Trial by Jury”, and many others. These of course also made Angela’s net worth grow. Altogether, Angela has been involved in over 40 TV series, films and shows, a further indication of her popularity with audiences, but also her acting  ability and standing with directors especially.

In her personal life, Angela Lansbury married actor Richard Cromwell n 1945, when she was 19 and he 16 years older, but they divorced the following year. Her second marriage was in 1949 to another actor, Peter Shaw, a union which lasted until his death in 2003, and which produced a son and a daughter. Angela is known to support a number of charities, including Abused Wives in Crisis, and organisations conducting research into a cure for HIV/AIDS.

Angela Lansbury is one of the most successful and popular actresses in the industry. During her career, she has been able to eventually achieve a lot. and win many awards. What is more, even though Angela is approaching 90 years of age, she still performs in theatre, showing that she still has the ability and talent to act and sing. It is clear that Angela loves what she does and will probably continue doing it as long as she will be able to. There is also a high possibility that Angela Lansbury’s net worth will also become higher in the future.

2 After a forty year absence triumphantly returned to London's West End stage in her Tony winning role as Madam Arcati in Sir Noel Coward's 'Blithe Spirit'. She won her only Laurence Olivier award for best supporting actress in 2015.
3 She created the role of Mame Dennis in Jerry Herman's Mame. When Jack L. Warner decided to make the movie _Mame_ he refused to cast Lansbury (despite intense pressure from Herman to do so) because she wasn't then a big enough star. He cast Lucille Ball instead. The film was a flop and Lansbury never forgave Warner.
4 After being created a CBE, she was promoted to Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to drama and to charitable work and philanthropy under her married name Angela Brigid, Mrs Lansbury Shaw, CBE.
5 She is known to be a very private person.
6 Gave birth to her 1st child at age 26, a son Anthony Pullen Shaw on January 7, 1952. Child's father was her 2nd husband, Peter Shaw.
7 Gave birth to her 2nd child at age 27, a daughter Deirdre Angela Shaw on April 26, 1953. Child's father was her 2nd husband, Peter Shaw.
8 She was awarded the DBE (Dame Commander of Order of the British Empire) in the 2014 Queen's New Year Honours List for services to drama and for charitable and philanthropic services.
9 In November 2013, it was announced that NBC would reboot Murder, She Wrote (1984) with Octavia Spencer in the role of Jessica Fletcher. Lansbury was unhappy about the idea, but was relieved when, in January 2014, the network decided not to go forward with the project.
10 She was awarded 2 Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Motion Pictures at 6623 Hollywood Boulevard; and for Television at 6259 Holywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
11 Is a staunch Democrat and a solid supporter of Barack Obama.
12 In the late 1940s, MGM planned to cast her as the female lead in a film entitled "Angel's Flight" with Clark Gable but the project never came to reality for Gable disliked the storyline, so the studio liquidated the entire project.
13 Is the only actress to appear in all 264 episodes of Murder, She Wrote (1984).
14 Alongside Norman Lloyd, William Daniels, Dick Van Dyke, Ernest Borgnine, Mickey Rooney, Betty White, Charlotte Rae, Adam West, Marla Gibbs, William Shatner, Larry Hagman, Florence Henderson, Shirley Jones and Alan Alda, Lansbury is one of the few actors in Hollywood who lived into their 80s and/or 90s without ever either retiring from acting or having stopped getting work.

16 The Oscar-winning song "Beauty and the Beast" almost wasn't sung by Angela Lansbury. Because it was a slow, romantic ballad, something she wasn't used to singing, Angela suggested that another character should sing it. The filmmakers asked her to try it just once, and Angela nailed the song in that one take. It is that take that you hear in the film.
17 She created the role of Mame Dennis in Jerry Herman's "Mame". When Jack L. Warner decided to make the movie, he refused to cast Angela Lansbury (despite intense pressure from Jerry Herman to do so) because she wasn't a big enough star. He cast Lucille Ball, instead.

1 [speaking in 2015 about reprising her Murder, She Wrote (1984) character Jessica Fletcher] I think it would be a downer. In some way, we'd have to show her as a much older woman, and I think it's better to maintain that picture we have in our mind's eye of her as a vigorous person. I'm still pretty vigorous, especially in the garden ... but if I wanted to transform myself back into the woman I looked like then, it would be ridiculous. And I can't do that.
2 [on Bette Davis] She is an original. There has never been anyone, before or since, who could touch her.
3 Children in our business suffer from exposure. Mine did because I was Broadway star. And my children's generation was the first to be confused by reality, The Sixties was a bad time to find yourself.
4 [on being awarded British Damehood] I'm joining a marvelous group of women I greatly admire like Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. It's a lovely thing to be given that nod of approval by your own country and I really cherish it.
5 [on the Murder, She Wrote (1984) remake] I think it's a mistake to call it Murder, She Wrote (1984), because Murder, She Wrote (1984) will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. So I'm sorry that they have to use the title Murder, She Wrote (1984), even though they have access to it and it's their right.
6 [on what make her going at the age of 87] I rest, I take a nap, I don't eat stupidly, I take care of the bod and that's very, very important when you get to a certain age. I'm the bionic woman; I've got knees, hips, everything is new and that has made a tremendous difference to me; replacements are high on my list of goodies.
7 [on the desire to perform until the very end] My son said to me "Mom, honestly, the best thing for you would be to keep working and just go out on stage." and I think that's a good thing to aim for.
8 [2013] I absolutely do not have a retirement age... I'm only 87 - which today is nothing. It's just like 60 a few years back. I believe age should not stop you from keeping on.
9 Work in the theatre just keeps revitalizing me, it keeps giving me the excitement and the fun of something new coming up and that's a great gift.
10 [Advice to aspiring actors] I really can't honestly give any tips beyond hang on to your dream. Hang on to what you want, what you feel you want to achieve and go for it. We are all the victims of our own talent and our own shortcomings sometimes, and we have to be aware of those things because they will trip us up and stop us from achieving what our aims are.
11 [on handling the early success and Oscar nominations while still being in her teens] I was a very serious teenager at that time and I considered the work to be the most important thing and I concentrated on that. I was a bit goody goody. I didn't fool around at all, which is a bit of a shame, I think. I've missed on a lot of fun, but I've made up for it later [laughs].
12 It has been erroneously reported that I am a Republican! I am not a Republican. It's all over the Internet and It's bizarre. I'm a huge Obama fan. I've already voted for him by absentee ballot. I am Democrat from the ground up.
13 Providing I can put one foot in front of the other, I will continue to act.
14 I'm never left behind. I'm the bionic woman.
15 [on working with the choir, the first time] I felt extremely nervous. I felt I was working with a group of people who are so wonderfully integrated among themselves to produce wonderful sound, music, singing
  • their voices are so pure, so clear. I've listened so much to them in
the past to be singing down with them, I was very nervous.
16 I just stopped playing bitches on wheels and peoples' mothers. I have only a few more years to kick up my heels!
17 I've had an incredible relationship with my husband, with my family. I know they've had problems of their own, but we have never wavered in our closeness as a family. I've had a hell of a life.
