The legendary British actress Angela Lansbury turned 93 in 2018, but she doesn’t plan on quitting!
In a recent interview with Larry King, the actress admitted that’s it’s not only her willingness to accept new roles and continue acting that keeps her going. She told the journalist:
I think I’m interested in every part of life. In other words, not just acting. Everything that’s given to us as human beings to indulge ourselves in in our lives – that’s what interests me: my grandchildren, my life, cooking, driving... Being independent, I think, is very much part of my credo.
Speaking about Lansbury’s grandchildren, she has more time to spend with them now that she’s in her nineties and her work schedule is not as tight as it used to be. So, how do they look like?
Lansbury’s three grandkids
Lansbury had two children with her husband, actor Peter Shaw (he passed away in 2003). The couple welcomed son Anthony in 1952 and daughter Deirdre in 1953. Shaw also had a son, David, from his previous relationship and Lansbury treated him as her own.
Anthony and Deirdre are married, and the former has three children – Ian, Peter, and Katherine – all of whom are grown-ups now.
Lansbury plays an important part in her grandkids’ lives. Being a present grandma is a priority for her!
All three of them look quite alike! Do you recognize their famous grandma’s features in their faces?
The actress is already a proud great-grandma
One of her grandkids, Peter, got married in 2014. When he and his wife welcomed their first child in 2017, Lansbury was over the moon! She told woman&home at the time:
I’ve just become a great-grandma for the first time (it’s my grandson Peter’s first child) – now that feels pretty wonderful. And of course I’m doing all the spoiling. If there’s one thing I want more time for at this stage of my life, it’s them.
With that attitude, the legendary actress will surely still be here to welcome more great-grandkids to spoil!
