 Cathy Tyson Biography :: Hollywood.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
American film audiences did not see Tyson again until she played a small but powerful part in the Brit import "Priest" (1994, released in US in 1995) as a proud housekeeper having an affair with a corrupted priest.
Tyson largely retreated to British TV in the early 90s, only to be utterly wasted playing a friend of the young gay protagonist of "The Lost Language of Cranes" (BBC, then PBS, 1992).
Tyson had more to do later that year in the fantasy drama "Angels", but a return to American TV found her mired in the melodramatic miniseries "Barbara Taylor Bradford's 'Remember'" (NBC, 1993).

 Stephen Dillane in Business As Usual
Her gradual acceptance of union help and her battle to win back her job are certainly stirring, and the movie (which is based on a 1983 case) is a real eye-opener on the subjects of British police harassment, cramped housing conditions and the Thatcher government's anti-labor bias.
Her lack of privacy in a home that also houses three grown sons and a prospective daughter-in-law is vividly suggested, and the writer-director, Lezli-An Barrett, does a good job of stressing the economic realities of their situation.
But you can't help wondering about the Tyson character's puzzling decision to continue working at the shop, and her willingness to go to dinner with this guy in spite of the fact that she loathes his crude attempts to manipulate her.

 Priest (1994) Director: Antonia Bird Stars: Linus Roache, Tom Wilkinson, Cathy Tyson, Robert Carlyle
Homosexual Catholic priests are, apparently, relatively common, but any kind of open expression of homosexual orientation by the ordained is of course forbidden.
Linus Roache plays the young but very conservative Father Greg Pilkington, new to a working class diocese and loaded up with fresh ideas and inner conflict.
The film can’t grapple with this idea because it’s too busy grinding its “let he who is without sin” axe and rushing away from developing its central character, an empty vessel who’s abandoned by everything, even his own movie.
