Biography
Wittily buoyant British comedienne Beryl Reid was a revue performer from the age of 16. Her film appearances, beginning with 1954's The Belles of St. Trinian's, have been few but always well received. In 1966, Ms. Reid radically altered her image to portray a mean-spirited lesbian radio star in the original stage production of The Killing of Sister George, repeating this characterization in the controversial 1968 screen version. On television, Beryl Reid co-starred with Alec Guinness in the 1982 BBC miniseries Smiley's People.
