About Lynn Redgrave

Lynn Redgrave was born into one of the most glittering of theatrical dynasties. Her grandfather was Roy Redgrave star of early Australian silent movies, her father was Sir Michael Redgrave, her mother Rachel Kempson, her brother and sister Corin and Vanessa Redgrave, and a total of six of their combined offspring are in the family Business.

She made an auspicious entry onto the London stage, with her brother, in Tony Robinson’s 1962 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Royal Court and a year later was one of the founding members of Laurence Olivier’s new venture the National Theatre (now the Royal National Theatre). It was however her performance in the eponymous role in the 1966 film Georgie Girl, a role she stepped into when her sister dropped out of the film at the last moment, that ensured a worldwide recognition of her talent and an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.

She was awarded an OBE in 2001.

Northanger Abbey Audiobook

Northanger Abbey Audiobook
Written by Jane Austen
Read by Lynn Redgrave

The great British actress Lynn Redgrave brings Jane Austen's first novel Northanger Abbey vividly to life in this unabridged audio book.

The story follows the 17 year old Catherine Morland,  one of those Austen girls who, in spite of her ironic portrait as a romantic heroine in training, ends up being someone whose story you’d follow to the end of the world. The villains and suitors somehow acquire those extra sixteen layers that Austen cannot help herself writing.

Northanger Abbey is a wonderful piece of gothic horror - but at the same time as you’re grinning at the terrifying manuscript Catherine finds in her bedroom, you’ll be delighting in the sheer brilliance of the first of Jane Austen’s great novels.
