Claire Bloom was born in London and made her first appearance on the stage with the Oxford Repertory Company at the age of sixteen. Her first major rôle came a year later, when she played Ophelia at Stratford-Upon-Avon opposite the alternating Hamlets of Paul Scofield and Robert Helpmann. Her first London appearance was as Alizon Eliot in John Gielgud’s production of Christopher Fry’s The Lady’s Not for Burning, opposite Richard Burton. Her performance in Peter Brook’s production of Jean Anouilh’s Ring Round the Moon, also starring Paul Scofield, led to the rôle of Teresa in Charles Chaplin’s 1952 film Limelight. Since then she has divided her career between England and the United States. Her films include Limelight, The Man Between, Richard III, Look Back in Anger, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Charley, The Haunting, A Doll’s House, Islands in the Stream, Clash of the Titans, Sammy and Rosie, Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors, and Imagining Argentina directed by Christopher Hampton. Her most notable stage rôles have included Juliet, Ophelia, Viola, Miranda and Cordelia at the Old Vic, and principal rôles in many productions in London’s West End and in New York.
