Dynamic, abrasive, dark-haired, award-winning English actress, a diplomat's daughter who spent a nomadic childhood in France, Norway and various countries of Africa. A major star of stage and TV, she played the crime family matriarch in TV's Peaky Blinders, as well as Narcissa Malfoy in the 'Harry Potter' films.

She died from cancer, with her husband, actor Damian Lewis, surviving her.
