Later Maggie made her debut in the movie industry in 1956 with her role in “Child in the House”, directed by Cy Endfield, in which she acted with Eric Portman, Stanley Baker, Phyllis Calvert and others, and then on Broadway in the “New Faces of ’56 Review”. In 1958 Maggie acted in “Nowhere To Go”, for which role Maggie received a BAFTA film nomination. With every performance in plays and appearance in the movies Smith became more and more popular.

All these appearances added a lot Maggie Smith’s net worth.

One of the most popular roles of Smith is the role of Professor Minerva McGonagall in “Harry Potter” films. While filming these movies, Maggie worked with Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and many other famous actors.

In fact she was made a Dame in 1990, having previously been awarded a CBE in 1970 – obviously her achievements are appreciated by royalty, too. Among many other awards connected to her acting, she has an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Cambridge University.

5Her guest appearance on The Graham Norton Show: Bradley Cooper/Sienna Miller/Dame Maggie Smith/Alex Jennings (2015) marked her first appearance on a TV talk show since she guested on Parkinson: Episode #2.33 (1973) 42 years earlier.

Her character was to be written out of the scene and replaced by another character.

19During the time she was cast in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969), producers approached her for further film roles in Cactus Flower (1969) and Mary, Queen of Scots (1971) but she turned them down as she wanted to limit her film work and focus more on theater.

#Quote
1Glenn Close isn't an actress - she's an address.
2[on whether she will miss filming Harry Potter now that the series is completed] No, it was 10 years, and that's a lot.
3I've won two Oscars and I still don't begin to understand film acting.
4It's true I don't tolerate fools, but then they don't tolerate me, so I am spiky. Maybe that's why I'm quite good at playing spiky elderly ladies.
5[on roles] "When you get into the granny era, you're lucky to get anything."
6I tend to head for what's amusing because a lot of things aren't happy. But usually you can find a funny side to practically anything.
7My career is chequered. Then I think I got pigeon-holed in humour; Shakespeare is not my thing.
8I wanted to be a serious actress, but of course that didn't really happen. I did Desdemona [at the National, opposite Olivier] with great discomfort and was terrified all the time. But then everyone was terrified of Larry.
9But there was an incredible nervousness about him. You couldn't do this, couldn't do that. Mustn't ride a bike, you'd be bound to fall off. Couldn't swim, you'd most certainly drown. [on her father]
10I longed to be bright and most certainly never was. I was rather hopeless, I suspect.
11I like the ephemeral thing about theatre, every performance is like a ghost - it's there and then it's gone.
12"I still miss him so much it's ridiculous. People say it gets better but it doesn't. It just gets different, that's all. Even in my dream I kept saying to him, 'You are dead. You can't be here'" [on her second husband, Beverley Cross].
13The performances you have in your head are always much better than the performances on stage.
14I love it, I'm privileged to do it and I don't know where I'd be without it. [on acting]
15"Jude is the most incredibly level person. Generous, understanding. All the things I'd have to work very hard at, Jude is like that all the time. I would love to be like that. And working with Jude you have to try to remember that you ought to be like that" [on her friend Judi Dench].
16One went to school, one wanted to act, one started to act, and one's still acting.

1Has often played grumpy, acid-witted ladies in the second half of her career.
