Angela Lansbury on Murder, She Wrote and a long career in acting
Originally published on September 30, 2019
In 1984, a strange new force appeared in the television landscape: a retired teacher-turned-mystery writer and detective named Jessica Fletcher.
The show was called Murder, She Wrote and it starred actress and singer Angela Lansbury. Thanks to its 12-season run and huge ratings, the entire world learned Lansbury's name.
This year is the 35th anniversary of Murder, She Wrote and Lansbury joined q's Tom Power to reflect on the series as well as her long career on screen and on Broadway.
"You have to keep your hand in," said Lansbury about what keeps her going.
"You know, I don't make movies anymore, but that's okay. My voice is not my fortune, but certainly, my voice is the thing I've been able to keep going and even though I'm going to be 94 next month, I don't feel anything like that."
