She appeared in British films for more than twenty years before she achieved her greatest success in middle age. The Wicked Lady (1945) was an international success, but it was her next film role, as Miss Havisham in Great Expectations (1946) that brought her renown as a film actress.
From this time she divided her time between British and Hollywood films. Some of her other films include Anna Karenina (1948), The Fan (1949), Anastasia (1956), The Admirable Crichton (1957) and The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964).
In addition to her films, she continued to work as a theater actress, winning a Tony Award in 1949 for The Madwoman of Chaillot.
She died in London, England.
