124 SAG-AFTRA | Fall/Winter 2022 | Angela Lansbury in Murder, She Wrote ANGELA LANSBURY, a Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement recipient, died Oct. 11 at the age of 96, five days shy of her 97th birthday. Lansbury — who joined Screen Actors Guild in 1943 and AFTRA in 1944 — had a career filled with impressive screen and stage accomplishments, from garnering an Oscar nomination for her first film appearance — in 1944's Gaslight — to receiving the Order of the British Empire in December 2013, bestowing upon her the title of "Dame." She was one of the most decorated players in stage history, having received five Tony Awards. In 1996, Lansbury received the 33rd Screen Actors Guild Life Achievement Award and was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame. In 2013 she received an honorary Academy Award. Lansbury received the SAG Life Achievement Award for her professional and philanthropic endeavors, which included involvement with charities that combated domestic abuse and HIV infection. In accepting the award, Lansbury lauded her fellow performers: "You know, over the past 54 years I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the greatest talents in the business: actors, directors, producers, composers, lyricists and animators. And wonderful craftspeople: crews, carpenters, lighting technicians [and] cameramen," she said. "It has been an outstanding life, especially for me. I just love actors. I love the creative environment of our work."
