Looks like we don't have Cicely Tyson salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Was misreported as being a decade younger than she actually was until The New York Times found out her real age in 2013. The newspaper claimed Tyson was born in 1924 and that she did not dispute it when they checked with her before printing the date.
2 Pictured on a $3.25 postage stamp issued by the island of Nevis on 1 January 2014.
3 Inducted into the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame in 1977.
4 Was considered for the role of Mags in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), which went to Lynn Cohen.
5 According to the New York Times, when Ms. Tyson won a Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for "The Trip to Bountiful" on June 9, 2013, she became the oldest person ever to win an acting Tony.
6 Has been a vegetarian since the 1960s.
7 She was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 7080 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on August 21, 1997.
8 Is one of 10 African-American actresses to be nominated for the Best Actress Oscar. The others in chronological order are: Dorothy Dandridge, Diana Ross, Diahann Carroll, Whoopi Goldberg, Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Gabourey Sidibe, Viola Davis and Quvenzhané Wallis.
9 Tyson won a judgment entitling her to full payment ($750,000) for her appearance in the short-lived 1983 Broadway play "The Corn Is Green". An Appeals Court upheld an earlier ruling handed down in 1996 in favor of Tyson. She was under contract to producer Elizabeth Taylor to act in stage and screen versions of the classic play. After critics panned the play, Tyson was fired for taking a night off to attend a tribute to her then-husband, the late jazz musician Miles Davis. The play closed after less than two weeks. Tyson maintained she should be paid as negotiated in her contract, even though the show closed early and a planned TV video of the production was never made.
10 The Cicely L. Tyson Community School of Performing & Fine Arts was named in her honor is located in East Orange, New Jersey. She visits the school frequently, and occasionally teaches a master class in acting.
11 In 1972, she and singer-actress Diana Ross were both nominated for "Best Actress in a Leading Role" Oscars for their performances in Sounder (1972) and Lady Sings the Blues (1972), respectively. This was only the second time in the history of the Academy Awards that African-American actresses were nominated in the "Best Actress" Oscar category.

#Quote
1 Age is just a number. Life and aging are the greatest gifts that we could possibly ever have.
2 How do you project a character if you don't have a sense of where she is from? I've always just gotten on a plane to go to the area to get a sense of what it is like, to smell it, feel the earth, hear people talk, go to the marketplaces. Being there [in Texas] I understood very clearly why my character [Carrie Watts in "The Trip to Bountiful"] longed to return because I was myself mesmerized by the beauty of the place and the tender enfolding of the gulf wind.
3 [of 'trances' she seems to occupy to prepare for roles] I'm looking inside myself. Inside of me is where this character is coming from, and I was feeling a sense of who this woman can be... I am the character [on set] until I go home.
4 One lady told me that before she saw Sounder (1972), she didn't believe black people could love each other, have deep relationships in the same way as white people.
5 [on her commitment to choose only positive images] Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch -- what make you go beyond the norm. The choices of roles I made had to do with educating and entertaining. And as a result, I found myself working only every two or three years.
