Welcome to Miranda Online
- the Miranda Richardson Appreciation Page. Miranda has
been a well-respected and admired actress since her debut
movie performance in 'Dance With a Stranger' in 1985.
Since then she has worked in a variety of movie,
television and stage roles, using her skill to always
immerse herself in the character she is playing to make
it totally believable. Working in many different genres;
comedy, drama, fantasy, historical, and straight voice
work, she is impossible to typecast. High profile roles
such as Mme Giry in 'Phantom of the Opera', Vanessa Bell
in 'The Hours', Lady van Tassel in 'Sleepy Hollow' and
Queenie in the ever popular 'Blackadder' have brought her
widespread recognition. But she also excels in smaller
roles, has appeared in many independent films, in films
made in countries with smaller movie industries such as
Canada and Australia, in radio productions, and uses her
versatile voice in a number of audio books, including the
popular 'Horrid Henry' series.

undertaken in her varied career.
