Anna Massey

As a veteran British television watcher, I’ve seen Anna Massey in a number of movies and T.V. shows, most recently the Hercule Poirot mystery The Clocks. She passed away yesterday. She was a consummate character actress, moving from serious to the absurd with ease. I loved her as Miss Prism in the 2002 Importance of Being Earnest; she gave the comic character a winsome charm that Wilde most certainly would not have approved of, but which, nevertheless, gave the character depth.
