Glenda Jackson, 1971

Glenda Jackson studied acting at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and was with the Royal Shakespeare Company for four years. Jack Robinson photographed Jackson on January 16, 1971 for a “People Are Talking About …” feature of Vogue and soon after, she would win her first Academy Award as Best Actress for her performance in Ken Russell’s Women in Love (1969). Directly following that role, she reunited with Ken Russell to star in The Music Lovers (1970) opposite Richard Chamberlain. Jackson was described in Vogue as “the British actress who plays unadmirable women to admiration, with a steamy swamp of a voice and a deep, rapidly accelerating laugh.” At the time of this session, her bangs had been trimmed back for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in the BBC serial Elizabeth R (1971).
