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.
