Jenny Agutter was born Dec.20,1952 in Taunton in the English West Country. The daughter of a British army officer, she spent her childhood visiting and living in many different countries, including Germany, Singapore and Cyprus. Back in England, she trained at Elmhurst Ballet School and at the age of eleven was cast as a young dancer in Walt Disney’s film Ballerina. A number of television and film roles followed. Celluloid celebrators got their first glimpse of feline-featured and enticingly engineered Jenny Agutter in the quickie East of Sudan (1964), followed by the kind of roles that befit an adorable child actress. It was filmmaker Nicolas Roeg who first realized her skintential in Walkabout (1971), a cult favorite set in the Australian outback that features aborigines, social commentary, and a healthy heap of natural nudity. She first played Roberta in a BBC serialisation of The Railway Children directed by Julia Smith in 1967. Almost three years later, after filming Walkabout in Australia, she was asked by Lionel Jeffries to play the same role in the film of The Railway Children. The following year she played Fritha in the BBC TV film of The Snow Goose, for which she won an Emmy. She has played in the West End in Stephen Poliakoff's Breaking the Silence and on Broadway opposite Derek Jacobi in Breaking the Code. Jenny’s television appearances have won her a large audience on both sides of the Atlantic. Her numerous credits include The Snow Goose, A War of Children, Beulah Land, Silas Marner and The Buccaneers. In 2000 Jenny returned to The Railway Children to play Mother in the Carlton TV adaptation of the story. More recently, Jenny played Tessa in the successful BBC TV series Spooks and played opposite John Hurt in the much acclaimed TV adaptation of The Alan Clark Diaries, shown on BBC4.
