Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A supporting player and occasional lead of TV and film, Lisa Harrow is far more established as a stage actress in Britain, where she has appeared with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) since 1969. A native of New Zealand, Harrow had many of her better chances in films once she reached middle-age, notably her award-winning turn as a writer whose world is shaken by the arrival of her sister in Gillian Armstrong's "The Last Days of Chez Nous" and as a troubled woman who mistakes a homeless man for a great film director in Jonathan Nossiter's "Sunday" (1997).
