Angela Lansbury On Playing Miss Daisy

A filmed version of Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones in “Driving Miss Daisy” is being shown in movie theatres the first week of June. (Details about where here.) Angela commented in a new interview about playing the old Southern biddy: ‘The great thing about theatre, you see, is that it’s all about illusion. At my age, I simply can’t get away with playing a 72-year-old woman like Daisy in the movies. But on stage, with make-up, I can. So the theatre, really, is the only place older actresses can still work.’
