Angela Lansbury, 89, could be described as a strong working woman, who listens to her inner voice. A defining time in her life was at 9 years old, when her father died.

Lansbury has worked continuously on stage, in television and movies her entire life. Born in England and raised in Ireland, currently maintains homes in Ireland and Los Angeles with a condominium in Manhattan and holds dual citizenship in England and the United States.
