  Brenda Fricker   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Fricker started out working in local theater productions in Ireland, and continued on-stage with a stint at the National Theatre in London; before long, the talented rising starlet was taking the stage with both The Royal Shakespeare Company and Great Britain's Court Theater Company.
Though, by the mid-'80s, Fricker had already garnered an impressive list of credits thanks to appearances in such made-for-television features as High Kampf (1973) and Your Man from 6 Counties (1976), it was her role as Nurse Roach in the popular U.K. series Casualty that first brought her to the attention of British television viewers.
Fricker remained with the series for four years, and it was during that time that she courted international recognition with her role in the acclaimed 1989 drama My Left Foot.

Unfortunately Charlie's tales of his family ranch in Alberta are more fanciful than factual and when she gets there her natural ebullience is tested to the limit by a crumbling shack and a frostbite-inducing welcome from his widowed mother (Brenda Fricker, superbly dour) and his crippled sister (Molly Parker).
The film was inspired by the experiences of screenwriter Angela Workman's mother, one of 48,000 war brides who immigrated to Canada during World War II, and it vividly demonstrates that for the unlucky ones the future was far from rosy.
Solid performances (as usual) from Anna Friel and Brenda Fricker provide genuine interest in the fate of the characters, and the supporting cast are all superb.
