Deborah Findlay Biography

Birthday: 2012-07-17
Place of Birth: Surrey, England
Wiki Biography: Deborah Findlay was born around 1957 and brought up in Surrey, where both her parents were enthusiastic amateur actors, passing their love for the theatre onto their daughter. She did not go to drama school, however, simply because she was unaware that such places existed and instead read English at Leeds University. Whilst working as a teacher, she became involved in community theatre at Stratford East in London, and impressed with her volume of stage work, appearing for 'Max Stafford-Clark' in the premiere of Caryl Churchill's "Top Girls" and, later, in the 1980s with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Primarily a stage actress, she has also appeared amongst the usual suspects in TV whodunnits like "Midsomer Murders" (1997) and "Foyle's War" (2002) as well as in "Cranford" (2007) but would like to do more cinema films, naming as her heroines the "femmes fatales" of the Golden Age of Hollywood like Bette Davis and Barbara Stanwyck.
