Happy Birthday to Gina McKee   Leave a comment

A very happy birthday to actress, Gina McKee, who was born in Sunderland, Tyne on Wear, on the 14 April, 1961.

She has been in plenty of television shows and films over the years including ‘Our Friends in the North,’ ‘Notting Hill’, ‘The Forsyte Saga,’ ‘Atonement,’ and the detective crime drama ‘Lewis.’

One of her more recent projects has seen her in the British comedy ‘In the Loop,’ with comedian Chris Addison, but for many people she will always be Irene Forsyte in the brilliant ITV mini-series, ‘The Forsyte Saga.’

Fiercely private and reluctant to give interviews, she is a far cry from the Lady Gagas of this world who constantly seek the attention of fans and the media. Perhaps the reason Gina looks so right in historical parts is that she exudes a beauty and elegance that is rare these days, but which harks back to an earlier age of grace, class and refinement.
