93-Year-Old Angela Lansbury Remembers Her Mom And Claims She Inherited Her Genes And Great Shape
Angela Lansbury’s mother, Moyna MacGill, was the film and television actress. She appeared on such films and TV series as “Frenchman's Creek,” “The Picture of Dorian Gray,” “Studio One,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Dr. Kildare,” “Mister Ed,” “I Dream of Jeannie,” and “My Favorite Martian.”
Angela Lansbury followed her mother’s footsteps and also became an actress. She is mostly known for the role of writer Jessica Fletcher on the TV series “Murder, She Wrote.” Throughout her life, Angela managed to build a rather successful acting career and was nominated for various prestigious awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, and various Primetime Emmy Awards.
But that’s not the only thing she inherited from her mom.
In the interview with the Sunday Post, the 93-years-old Angela Lansbury revealed that she is very thankful for inheriting her mother’s energy and optimism:
I inherited my mother’s energy. There might be a good few years behind me now but I am really only concerned with those in front of me. I still feel full of energy and I certainly don’t feel 93. I still like a glass of wine and take a lot of vitamins – perhaps that is what keeps me going.
Angela Lansbury had really trustful relations with her mother, Moyna MacGill, and she was even her matron of honor at the wedding when she married the British actor Peter Shaw back in 1949.
She still calls her the “Irish beauty,” and keeps mother’s portrait on a wall. Her memories arise every time she looks at the portrait. As reported by the People, Angela said:
Her beauty absolutely dazzled me as a child. I would help her get dressed; then she’d go out in a flurry of powder and perfume and get herself up to go to the theater.
Angela Lansbury was really lucky to have such an inspiring and devoted mother as Moyna Macgill. And she proved to be a loving daughter, who will never forget about her mom.
