She is survived by her daughters, grandkids, and great-grandchildren. She was most known for playing Jessica Fletcher in “Murder She Wrote” and in Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” she provided Mrs. Potts’ voice.
The 96-year-old Angela Lansbury was a well-known Broadway performer, Mrs. Potts’ voice in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and Jessica Fletcher’s visage in Murder She Wrote. Seven decades of Lansbury’s work saw her win five Tony Awards, an Academy Honorary Award, six Golden Globes, and even the title of Dame from Queen Elizabeth II.
In several Beauty and the Beast products, such as movies, animated films, and video games, Lansbury provided the voice of Mrs. Potts. The Last Unicorn, an animated film from 1982, had Mommy Fortuna as part of its vocal cast.
Dame Angela Lansbury passed away quietly in her sleep at home in Los Angeles at 1:30 AM on October 11, 2022, just five days before her 97th birthday, according to a statement from the family.
As the son of British politician Edgar Lansbury and Irish actress Moyna Macgill, Lansbury was born in 1925. The teen started acting nearly right away when the family immigrated to America from the U.K. in 1940 during World War II.
The gifted actress joined MGM in 1942 and received her first Oscar nomination for Gaslight in 1944. She also received nominations for The Picture of Dorian Gray in 1945 and The Manchurian Candidate in 1962.
In addition to her numerous grandkids and great-grandchildren, the legend is survived by her son Anthony Shaw, a writer and filmmaker, her daughter Dierdre Shaw, a restaurant owner, and her son-in-law David Shaw.
