Susan FitzGerald


Born - 28 May 1949, Leicester, Leicestershire, UK
Died - 9 September 2013

Light-haired actress of sharp-faced attractiveness and Irish heritage. A major star of the Irish stage, especially at the Gate theatre, having gone to Ireland in her late teens, she married the theatre's artistic director Michael Colgan (they were divorced in 2010). She made a solitary film debut in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1977), but in later years her busy schedule allowed a few more film appearances, among them those in The Serpent's Kiss (1997), Angela's Ashes (1999), Footfalls (2000), Trouble with Sex (2006), Satellites & Meteorites (2008) and Happy Ever Afters (2009), her last. The niece of Hollywood star Geraldine Fitzgerald and cousin of actress Tara Fitzgerald, she died after a long battle with cancer.
