Biography

British actor, political activist and noted family, the son of actor Sir Michael Redgrave (born 3/20/1908, Bristol) and his wife, actress Rachel Kempson (born 5/28/1910, Dartmouth), a distinguished theatrical family. His sisters are both noted actresses, Vanessa and Lynn Redgrave. Redgrave is the co-director of Britain's Moving Theatre and Founder of Symposium 90, an international association that researches the origins and consequences of Stalinism. His film credits include "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "In the Name of the Father," "A Man for all Seasons," "Persuasion" and "The Ice House."

After attending Westminster School in London and Cambridge University, Redgrave followed in the family tradition and chose a career in acting. With his first stage role as Lysander in Tony Richardson's production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in 1961, he found his vocation and diligently pursued it with his family's blessing. With a solid background in Shakespeare, film and British TV, 37 years later Redgrave made headline news on 2/25/1999 with his performance in his sister Vanessa's Broadway production of Tennessee William's obscure first play entitled, "Not About Nightingales," where he received a standing ovations and rave reviews. When not touring, the actor lives in London where he and his sister Vanessa serve as Directors of Britain's Moving Theatre.

The actor suffered a heart attack on June 8, 2005 in London while he was attending a meeting on the rights of travelers who move from town to town and live in encampments. He was in serious condition but is expected to recover.

He died on April 6, 2010 in London, age 70.
