Is one of five Scottish actors to have received an Academy Award nomination. The others in chronological order are Mary Ure, Ian Bannen, Tom Conti and Sean Connery. As of 2017 Connery is the only one to have won an Academy Award (for his performance in The Untouchables (1987)).


Deborah Kerr, her husband Peter Viertel and her biographer Eric Braun all died within the space of five weeks in the fall of 2007. All were aged 86.


Her brother Ted Trimmer was killed in a road-rage incident at the age of 78 (August 2004).


She was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1998 Queen’s New Year Honours List for her services to drama.


Her last public appearance was in 1994 when she was awarded an honorary Oscar after six failed nominations over the years. Along with Thelma Ritter, she is one of the few actresses to have received six nominations and not have won an Oscar. On Oscar evening, Glenn Close presented a special tribute to her work, and the Oscar audience watched clips of her films to music. She then appeared from behind the screen, obviously frail, in a blue pastel trouser suit and received a standing ovation from her peers. A life-long shy person, she said, “I have never been so terrified in my life, but I feel better now because I know that I am among friends. Thank you for giving me a happy life.” Following this, there was another standing ovation and she left the stage, her exit becoming her last official goodbye to Hollywood. Ironically, Close herself has since passed Kerr with seven nominations and Ritter’s record, receiving six nominations with–so far–no wins.


Patron of the National Society of Clean Air and Enviromental Protection in Britain from 1992 until her death in 2007.


Similar to her losing streak at the Oscars, she was finally awarded a BAFTA “Special Award” in 1991 after being nominated four times. She did, however, win the New York Film Critics Award three times and the Golden Globe Award for King and I, The (1956).


When she appeared in “The Corn Is Green” in 1985, she was suffering from a case of stage fright and, consequently received some of her most disappointing reviews.


Had three grandsons: Joe (b. 1976), Alexander (b. 1979) and Thomas Shrapnel (b. 1981), via her daughter Francesca.


Suffered a miscarriage in February 1961 while two months pregnant with her husband Peter Viertel’s baby.


Originally when filming began on Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957), her co-star Robert Mitchum worried that Kerr would be like the prim characters she frequently played. However, after she swore at director John Huston during one take, Mitchum, who was in the water, almost drowned laughing. The two stars went on to have an enduring friendship that lasted until Mitchum’s death in 1997.


Her singing voice was dubbed by Marni Nixon in King and I, The (1956).


Joan Crawford was originally meant to play her role in From Here to Eternity (1953), but when she insisted on shooting the film with her own cameraman, the studio balked. It decided to take a chance and cast Kerr, who then was struggling against her ladylike stereotype, to play the adulterous military wife who has an affair with Burt Lancaster. The casting worked and her career thereafter enjoyed a new, sexier versatility.


In Italy, almost all of her films were dubbed by either Lydia Simoneschi or Renata Marini. She was occasionally dubbed by Dhia Cristiani, Andreina Pagnani and once by Gemma Griarotti in Quo Vadis (1951).


Was 1 month pregnant with her daughter Melanie when she completed filming King Solomon’s Mines (1950).


Returned to work 8 months after giving birth to her daughter Francesca to begin filming Edward, My Son (1949).


Has two daughters from her marriage to Anthony C. Bartley: Melanie Jane Bartley (born December 27, 1947) and Francesca Anne Bartley (born December 18, 1951). Bartley was a WWII Royal Air Force squadron leader.


Her first appearance on the West End stage was as Ellie Dunn in “Heartbreak House” at the Cambridge Theatre in 1943. She performed in France, Belgium and Holland with ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association, or Every Night Something Awful) – The British Army entertainment service.


She subsequently performed with the Oxford Repertory Company 1939-40.


Deborah Jane Trimmer was born on 30 September 1921 in Glasgow, Scotland, the daughter of Captain Arthur Kerr Trimmer. She was educated at Northumberland House, Clifton, Bristol. She first performed at the Open Air Theatre in Regent’s Park, London.
