Maggie Smith’s career in acting is the stuff of legends. The 87-year-old British actress began acting in the mid-1950s and hasn’t stopped since. Let’s look back on photos of her at the beginning of her career to see just how far she’s come both as a performer and as a person.
Thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we haven’t seen Maggie Smith out in public too often. Thanks to her age, Smith is extra vulnerable to the deadly virus and has wisely chosen to stay away from the public over the last three years. Due to those circumstances, the most recent photos available of Smith were taken way back in 2019. She attended a few games at Wimbledon, and a few months later she rubbed elbows with Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles at a literacy charity function.

Though she’s been out of the public eye during the pandemic, Smith has remained busy with work. She’s continued her acclaimed role as Violet Crawley on the British drama Downton Abbey, recently wrapping up filming on Downton Abbey: A New Era which is expected to be released on May 20th. She has also been cast in two other films, A German Life and The Miracle Club, which are in the pre-production phase.
