Britain's Greatest Ever Actress
94 years ago tonight, on Bonfire Night 1913, Britain's greatest ever actress, Vivien Leigh, was born. As an only child, Vivien was constantly reminded by her mother that she was special. Once when she asked why fireworks were being let off on 5th November, she was told 'it's for your birthday, darling".
For those who missed it, here's my Daily Express appreciation of this wonderful actress, written to commemorate the 40th anniversary of her death in July.
