Susannah Yolande Fletcher Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Susannah York (9 January 1939 – 15 January 2011) was an English film, stage and television actress. She was awarded a BAFTA as Best Supporting Actress for They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) and was nominated for an Oscar and Golden Globe for the same film. She won best actress for Images at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival. In 1991 she was appointed an Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Her appearances in various hit films of the 1960s formed the basis of her international reputation, and an obituary in The Telegraph characterised her as "the blue-eyed English rose with the china-white skin and cupid lips who epitomised the sensuality of the swinging Sixties".

1[on punching John Huston on the set of Freud (1962)] I beat up John Huston and he's a very big guy. He made a hideous joke about Monty and I just saw red and laid into him. Monty was worried about his eyesight and Huston said he'd get him a guide dog for Christmas. I hit Huston with tremendous force and he staggered back against the wall. I'm very, very strong.
2My career is incredibly important to me and I am so lucky to have such a wonderful life but, no matter how important my work is to me, my family always comes first... I really am still having a truly amazing life. I touch wood all the time.
3[on Warren Beatty] Warren is a teddy bear, though I used to become annoyed when the teddy bear hugs turned to bottom pinches.
4"The Superman films were just a lot of fun. One didn't take them very seriously. The draw as far as I was concerned was Marlon Brando, and the people were all very enjoyable to work with. There's not a lot I can say about what went into the performance. I suppose it's good to be seen in a film that is going to be very popular and it's quite flattering to be chosen to play the mother of Superman! The special effects were fabulous and you were very aware of all that going on - tramping over polystyrene and so on".
5[on being labeled a 'film star'] "I hated that appellation, I was an actor. I did not want to have an image, be seen as the blue-eyed, golden-haired ingénue. Being a 'star' seemed to lock you into an image and I was always frightened of that because I knew I would disappoint people. I knew I wouldn't be like that and I didn't want them to get the wrong end of the stick so early on."
6[on Tom Jones (1963)] "I'd actually turned it down three times because I really wanted to do some theatre. I had made up my mind to say no once and for all at a lunch I cooked for Tony Richardson, after three or four wooing lunches from him and Vanessa Redgrave. I did all the classic things - salt instead of sugar, burnt the meringues - and, in the midst of all my apologies, I accepted".
7[speaking in 2005] "I'm an infinitely better actress now than I was 30 years ago because I've had experiences and I've learned. I do look back on some roles and think I was dreadful, but I'm not going to tell you which performances I'm talking about."
8[speaking in 2005] "I think I've had good luck in the quality and talent of the people I've worked with. Getting on well with other actors has also been important. In my experience, really good actors are often really good eggs, and Marlon Brando and Liz Taylor are no exception."
9I usually find that actors are rather interested people. It's part of our profession. It all starts with curiosity about other human beings. The best actors have that kind of interest in people and in life.
10[on being Oscar nominated for her role in They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969)] "I don't think I have much of a chance and I didn't think much of myself in it."
1Stepped into the role of Margaret in "A man for all season" (1966) as a last-minute replacement for Vanessa Redgrave, who opted out of the film in favor of appearing on stage in the tile role in "The prime of Miss Jean Brodie.".
2In 1979, she appeared in a television documentary entitled "Twenty Years On", which re-united five friends who had been students at the Royal Academy Of Dramatic Art in the 1950s. One of the five had given up acting after marrying and having children; one had given up acting to become a successful chef and restaurateur; one had given up acting to concentrate on writing and had become a successful playwright (this was the well-known Hugh Whitemore); one had remained in acting without any great success and was still working in provincial repertory theaters; and one had become an international star - this was Susannah York, of course. The program was aired on BBC-2 on a Sunday night (February 4th, 1979).
3She appeared in two Best Picture Academy Award winners: Tom Jones (1963) and A Man for All Seasons (1966).
4Attended and graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
5She was awarded Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters by French culture minister Jack Lang in 1991.
6Had appeared with Nigel Davenport in four films: Sands of the Kalahari (1965), A Man for All Seasons (1966), Sebastian (1968) and A Christmas Carol (1984).
7Had appeared with Christopher Plummer in four films: Battle of Britain (1969), Lock Up Your Daughters! (1969), Conduct Unbecoming (1975) and The Silent Partner (1978).
8Her favorite actor was Spencer Tracy.
9Mother, with Michael Wells, of son Orlando Wells and daughter Sasha Wells.
10"The Loves of Shakespeare's Women", conceived and adapted by Ms. York, was inspired by John Gielgud's one-man show "The Ages of Man".
11Was a member of the jury at the Berlin International Film Festival in 1992.
12Was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1979.
13Became an Associate Member of Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
14Spoke French fluently.
15Her children, Orlando Wells born 9 June 1973 and Sasha Wells, both co-starred with her in A Christmas Carol (1984), portraying two of the Cratchit offspring to her Mrs. Cratchit.
16Was also a writer of children's books. Her publications include "In Search of Unicorns" (1973) and "Lark's Castle" (1975).
