Judy Geeson

Biography

Date of Birth 10 September 1948, Arundel, Sussex, England, UK Birth Name Judith Amanda Geeson Mini Biography Born in Arundel, Sussex in 1948, Judy's father moved the family into London when she was 10 years old and enrolled her and sister Sally Geeson into the Corona Academy, Chiswick. Judy initially wanted to be a ballet dancer but had to change course when she suffered from terrible headaches as a result of some of the moves but acting had always been a great interest and she chose to pursue this, making in her first TV appearance in "Dixon of Dock Green" (1955) aged 12. Her first major film role was as wayward teenager Pamela Dare opposite Sidney Poitier in To Sir, with Love (1967) at the age of 18. After a very successful film run during the 1960s and 1970s Judy took a trip to the US in October 1984 choosing to stay on for a while. By May 1985 she had met and married Kristoffer Tabori and moved to California. However, the marriage had broken down by 1989. Despite this, Judy chose to stay in the US and she currently lives in Los Angeles. IMDb Mini Biography By: Sarah Mitchell Spouse Kristoffer Tabori (1984 - 1989) (divorced) Trivia Sister of Sally Geeson Ex-daughter-in-law of Viveca Lindfors and Don Siegel. Has worked with many Oscar-winning actors including Sidney Poitier, John Wayne, David Niven, Joan Crawford and Helen Hunt - but not in any of their Oscar-winning works. In the late 1980s, along with fellow Brit performers Jenny Agutter, Ian McKellen, Timothy Dalton and Olivia Hussey, she spent time volunteering teaching Shakespeare to children at a school in Watts, Los Angeles. Personal Quotes I'm not sure how other people of my generation look back on that time (when she acted in To Sir, with Love (1967)), but since I trained at a professional stage school, if you took yourself too seriously, or started to think you were better than anybody else, you just got the shit beaten out of you. Oh, I loved John Wayne. He was just so charming and easy to work with. Although we shot the film (Brannigan (1975)) in London, it was like making an American movie just because you were working with John Wayne. It was very funny to see the look on people's faces when we were filming. We'd pull up in a car on a London street, and you'd see these people looking at him, and they must have been thinking, 'That man looks just like John Wayne. But, oh, it can't be.' I think he got a kick out of that. When you act a scene with Sidney Poitier he listens intently to every word you say. You can feel your words hit him. He makes the scene utterly real.
