She believes that actors playing at being in love are showing the audience what they're feeling at each stage in the relationship, which is the exact opposite of what a real love affair needs, which is privacy. Acting, the audience becomes an intimate partner of the staged lovers, where in real life, lovers need to curtain themselves off from the rest of the world to create real intimacy. Though she admits in her 2001 memoir, "I Will Be Cleopatra", that she violated the rule, she was reticent in providing details. However, she was named as a correspondent by Albert Finney's wife Jane Wenham in their divorce.


She was awarded the 1995 Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Distinguished Lead Actress for "Master Class" in a Gordon Davidson/Mark Taper Forum production at the Mark Taper Forum Theatre in Los Angeles, California.


Caldwell has managed to avoid the silver screen, appearing briefly in Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985) and scoring a larger role in Birth (2004). She took her resounding stage triumph "Medea" to TV and also performed magnificently as Lady Macbeth and Sarah Bernhardt on the small screen.


As a now-prestigious stage director, she made her Broadway bow in 1977 with "An Almost Perfect Person," and later helmed productions of "Richard II," "Othello," "Macbeth" and, more recently, "Vita and Virginia" starring Eileen Atkins and Vanessa Redgrave. She and husband Whitehead have maintained a long and successful private and professional partnership, first working together on "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" and later with "Medea.

To the dismay of film audiences, Ms.


She was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1970 Queen's New Years Honours List for her services to theatre and the John Gielgud Award by the Shakespeare Guild.


As a testament to her remarkable talent, Broadway has honored esteemed stage actress Zoe Caldwell four times with Tony Awards: for "Slapstick Tragedy" (1966), for her title role in "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie" (1968), for her searing performance as "Medea" (1982), and as opera diva Maria Callas in "Master Class" (1995). The Australian-born actress began her professional career at the tender age of 9 in a production of "Peter Pan" and went on to find radio work in her teens. Her parents provided her with the necessary foundation long ago with lessons in dance, elocution and music. She left school at age 15 and made her living teaching speech and performing on a children's radio program. Years of repertory work accumulated a formidable resume.


Broadway finally opened its curtains for her in 1965 when she briefly replaced Anne Bancroft in "The Devils.


" In 1963 she helped launch the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre.


Played Cordelia to Charles Laughton's King Lear at the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1959. Caldwell, loathed Laughton, and she credits the tension between the two with deepening the drama of their performances, where the characters are engaged in a clash of wills.
