Angela Lansbury

Angela Lansbury:

Angela Lansbury was born in London in 1925. She is best known for her starring role in Murder, She Wrote. She was the only main star. She portrayed Jessica Fletcher, a substitute English Teacher and she loves to read and write books, and writes several of them about mysteries, since that is her favorite genre since she is also detective. The show ran for many years, and became much better every season, but it was eventually cancelled anyways, which upset Angela Lansbury as she talks about it during an interview.

More information about Angela Lansbury will be added later.......
