Dame Janet Suzman in conversation
Dame Janet Suzman in conversation with Professor Judith Buchanan, Master of St Peter's College
We are delighted to welcome actor, director, Academy Award nominee and anti-Apartheid campaigner, Dame Janet Suzman, to St Peter's College.
Janet Suzman remains one of the most respected classical stage actresses of her time, having portrayed most of Shakespeare’s heroines, including Cleopatra, during her career. She has also worked alongside some of stage and screen's most legendary stars, including Marlon Brando, Sir Laurence Olivier, Ava Gardner and Sir Derek Jacobi.
She was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Czarina Alexandra in Nicholas and Alexandra (1971), a sweeping historical epic about the fall of the Romanovs.
Suzman also starred alongside Donald Sutherland and Susan Sarandon in A Dry White Season (1989), a provocative drama that centres on a white schoolmaster's gradual awakening to the horrors of government-sanctioned racism in South Africa during the 1970s.
