Angela Lansbury recorded an interview in 2010 with the explicit request that it not be released until she died.

The death of the Broadway star was announced on Tuesday, October 11th. The New York Times soon after tweeted, “She spoke with us with the understanding that the interview would be published only after her death.”

The video was released twelve years later, as per her wishes.

“I was far too talented as an actress. I was primarily an actress with a not-so-pretty face “In the opening sequence of the 13-minute video titled The Last Word: Angela Lansbury, Lansbury says.

The British-born actress reflects on her long career, stating that she was “first and foremost” a character actor.

“However, the one area in which I was not a character actress, really, was playing Jessica Fletcher,” Lansbury says of her leading role in Murder, She Wrote.

“Jessica Fletcher was probably about as close, not to me, but to the sort of woman I might have been if I hadn’t been an actress,” the actor says of playing the writer-detective for 12 years.

Lansbury’s career spanned seven decades, despite her fame as a leading lady. She appeared in approximately 60 films and several Broadway musicals.

She has received six Golden Globes, five Tony Awards, and an honorary lifetime Oscar for her work in American theatre.

Lansbury was honoured with the Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre in June, her sixth Tony Award.
