She studied theater at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, then began her professional career in 1951. Roberts focused primarily on the stage, but appeared in about two dozen movies from 1953-80; she was often cast as a blowsy, sensual housewife. For her work in This Sporting Life (1963) she received a Best Actress Oscar nomination and won the British Film Academy Best Actress award. She also won British Film Academy awards for her work in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (1960) and Yanks (1979). In the mid '70s, Roberts moved to Los Angeles, going on to costar as the housekeeper Mrs. McClellan on the TV sitcom "The Tony Randall Show." From 1955-61 she was married to actor Alan Dobie; from 1962-71 she was married to actor Rex Harrison, with whom she appeared in A Flea in Her Ear (1968). She died at 53 from barbiturate poisoning; her death was ruled a suicide.

  • The only actress to date that kept a vivid account of her life on record up until the very eve of her death. This account was published posthumously as No Bells on Sunday: The Rachel Roberts Journals (edited by the late Alexander Walker and interwoven with commentary and interviews from friends and colleagues; Pavilion Books and Simon & Schuster, London & New York, first editions 1984)
  • Actual suicide was a result of swallowing lye, alkali, or another unidentified caustic substance on top of the barbiturates which were ingested as proven in her published journals. The acidic effect of the poisonous agent was an immediate cause of death which propelled her body through a decorative glass screen. She was found by her Mexican gardener cut to ribbons in a negligee on her kitchen floor amongst the shards of glass on November 26, 1980.
  • Played quite a few gravelly-voiced musical roles in the 1950s on stage before she focused on drama, including "Talk of the Night," "The Buccaneer," "Oh, My Papa!" and "Maggie May."
  • Making her debut as Ceres in "Twelfth Night" with Michael Redgrave in 1951, she performed at the Old Vic Company in 1954 and 1955 with Shakespearean roles in "Macbeth," "Love's Labour's Lost," "Othello" and "Henry V."
  • Trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art where she was awarded the Athene Seyler Award for Comedy.
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 1974 Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic) for performances with the New Phoenix Repertory Company.
