ACTRESS Frances Barber is back on our screens this Christmas for BBC ghost story – Mezzotint: A Ghost Story for Christmas
Having been a famous actress for three decades, everyone, meet Frances Barber.
Who is Frances Barber?
Frances Barber is a 63-year-old British actress.
Barber was born in Wolverhampton, Staffordshire, England.
She received an Olivier Award nomination for her work in plays such as Camille (1985), and Uncle Vanya (1997).
Her film appearances include three collaborations with Gary Oldman in Prick Up Your Ears (1987), We Think the World of You (1988) and Dead Fish (2005), as well as Sammy and Rosie Get Laid (1987 ), Soft Top Hard Shoulder (1992), and The Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool (2017).
Her television credits include The Street (2009), Which doctor? (2011), and Silk (2012–2014).
Is she married?
No, Babe is not married.
The actress has not revealed the reason why she has not chosen a husband.
However, Frances had a few relationships with the partners she met in the course of her work.
Her first boyfriend was Danny Boyle, the director of Slumdog Millionaire, with whom she worked during high school.
The actress also had a lovely relationship with Drop the Donkey actor Neil Pearson. They dated for 5 years and finally broke up in 1990.
Her last known relationship was with her King Lear co-star, Sir Ian McKellen. They were in love until 2008.
She will always remember and love him for the support he gave her when she was in a bicycle accident in 2007 that broke her knee.
Three years ago, Frances opened up in an interview with The Times about being single and turning 60.
“I’m fine with 40, okay with 50, but at 60, I just want to pretend it didn’t happen,” she said. “Seeing ‘6’ as the first digit – I really don’t like it! It feels very old. But then I saw Nigella Lawson talk about turning 60 and how you have to accept it, and I thought, ‘She’s right!’ This is a new chapter, and 60 is supposed to be the new 40.
“Women have been renewed. We were brought up to think that at this age it would all be over, but that feeling is no longer the case. It’s not as terrible as I thought it would be.”
What is her net worth?
According to MariedBiography.com, the barber has an estimated net worth of $56 million.
She earned that money mainly through her acting career.
She won the Dagger Award in the category of Best Supporting Actress for Silk in 2012 and won the Best Actress award for Trick or Treat in 2019.
