Actor Glenda Jackson Is King Lear
The 82-year-old British actor is currently playing Shakespeare's famed tragic figure on Broadway — a role traditionally played by a man. "As we get older, those absolute barriers that define gender begin to crack," she says. Jackson took a 23-year break from acting when she was elected to Parliament in 1992. She talks about playing kings and queens and what it was like having her own constituency.
