Award-winning actress Eileen Atkins talks about her career on the American and British stage and screen since 1957. Made a Dame in 1991, she has an Emmy and a BAFTA to her name, and is a three-time Olivier Award winner. As if that wasn’t enough, she co-created Upstairs, Downstairs and wrote the screenplay for Mrs Dalloway (for which she won an Evening Standard Award). Eileen draws on anecdotes from her first autobiographical work Will She Do? which charts her life from humble beginnings to Broadway fame. Chaired by Juliet Nicolson.
