Family & Companions
A scion of the famous acting family, Corin Redgrave maintained the lowest profile as well as the longest periods of inactivity, compared to his more famous sisters, Vanessa and Lynn Redgrave. Nevertheless, he amassed a respectable list of stage credits as well as numerous key supporting roles in British features. Redgrave's first professional stage work was as director of "The Scarecrow" at the Royal Court Theatre in London, and by the next year, he portrayed Lysander in the Royal Court's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." By 1963, he had crossed the Atlantic to appear on Broadway in a supporting part in "Chips with Everything." Redgrave's feature film work began with a turn as Roper in Fred Zinnemann's "A Man for All Seasons" in 1966. Many of his other film roles were in decidedly British works, such as the remake of "The Charge of the Light Brigade" (1968), directed by then brother-in-law Tony Richardson, and Sir Richard Attenborough's heralded "Oh, What a Lovely War" (1969).
After many years spent concentrating on politics in his native land, Redgrave turned his attentions back to acting. He was the nemesis Robert Dixon in "In the Name of the Father" (1993) and Hamish, whom Andie MacDowell marries, in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994). Redgrave's television appearances were mostly sporadic, most notably as Steerforth in the telefilm "David Copperfield" (NBC, 1970) and Octavius in "Antony and Cleopatra" (BBC, 1975). In 1994, Redgrave joined his sister Vanessa in founding the Moving Theatre Company, a passion in his life. Redgrave died in London at the age of 70, followed in quick succession by his youngest sibling, Lynn, who passed away from breast cancer less than a month after her brother, leaving Vanessa the sole surviving child of famed English actors Sir Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson.
