Actress
    (May 24, 1923-November 16, 1986)
    Born in Belfast, Northen Ireland, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Siobhan Giollamhurie Nic Cionnaith
    Appeared in the films 'Daughter of Darkness' (1948), 'The Adventurers' (1951), 'King of Kings' (1961), 'Of Human Bondage' (1964), 'Doctor Zhivago' (1965) and 'Memed My Hawk' (1984)
    Appeared on Broadway in 'The Chalk Garden' (1955) and 'The Rope Dancers' (1958)
    Her first name is hard to say. (It is pronounced 'shi-vahn.')
    She said, 'I'm a party girl, but if I have a hangover I take nothing for it. I want to know how hungover I am.'
    During a scuffle at the Establishment Club in London, she scratched the face of club owner Peter Cook (1962).
    In an interview with the BBC (1959), she called the IRA 'young idealists' and described a border raid that had killed four and injured 20 as 'throwing peanuts.'
    She was twice nominated for a Tony as best actress.
    Time magazine wrote that she 'has a magnetic personality and she knows how to populate a stage singlehanded.'
    Critic Finton O'Toole called her 'the physical embodiment of mother Ireland.'
    She said about her decision to largely avoid Hollywood, 'They said, 'We'll get you great parts, but first we'll spend six months grooming you.' Then somebody told me what grooming means: it means an operation on your behind, your front and your nose, so I said that's that.'
