Monday night on PBS, I have a conversation with actress Angela Lansbury, whose iconic performances have graced stage, screen and television for more than 70 years. Lansbury has won a record five Tony Awards and six Golden Globe Awards. Just last month she was recognized with an Honorary Oscar. She is perhaps best known for her portrayals of the detective Jessica Fletcher in the long-running television series, Murder, She Wrote, and the diabolical meat pie-maker in Sweeney Todd. Up next, she reprises her Tony-winning performance in Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit for the first time in 40 years.
In the clip below, Lansbury shares candid thoughts about the planned remake of Murder She Wrote starring award-winning actress Octavia Spencer.
