An Academy Award winning actress for her role in the 1965 production of Darling.

Born in Chuka, Assam, India on April 14, 1941 of British parents, Ms. Christie grew up on a tea plantation. Later, studying in both India and England to become an artist and/or a linguist, she enrolled in the Central School of Speech Training in London. By 1957, it looked as if destiny was calling when she began stage work with the Frinton Repertory of Essex.

She shortly began an ongoing role in a British TV sci-fi drama, A Is For for Andromeda, and depending on sources, her first movie role was either in The Fast Lady in 1962 or Crooks Anonymous in 1963. Many roles throughout the next four decades have shown the extraordinary ability of this aging and yet amazing actress. She starred in numerous successful films, including Doctor Zhivago with Omar Sharif and three films (McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Shampoo, and Heaven Can Wait) with Warren Beatty, with whom she was romantically linked for a few years. Most recently, she was again nominated for Best Actress for her role in Afterglow with Nick Nolte.
