Redgrave received her first Academy Award nomination for the film, Georgy Girl (playing a role that had been turned down by her sister Vanessa). Lynn has appeared in many stage productions in London and New York, having famously performed two one-woman shows, Shakespeare For My Father and Nightingale, about her life and family (including her father, actor Michael Redgrave).
