Glenda Jackson: Two-Time Oscar Winner Who Paused Acting for Politics

From a Washington Post obit by Brian Murphy headlined “Glenda Jackson, two-time Oscar winner who paused acting for politics, dies at 87”:

Glenda Jackson, a British actress with a pugnacious spirit and caustic wit who won two Oscars and later left acting for nearly 25 years while serving as a member of Parliament, only to return to the stage at age 80 for a triumphal performance as “King Lear,” died June 15 at her home in London.
