Joyce Redmond, at 96; actress was twice nominated for Oscar
Joyce Redman, the Anglo-Irish actress who brought a mischievous sparkle to the most suggestive scene ever filmed at a dining table - the unforgettable display of gluttony and lust in the 1963 movie “Tom Jones,’’ died May 10 in Kent, England. She was 96. Her son, actor Crispin Redman, announced the death and said his mother had pneumonia. In a career spanning eight decades, Redman was a stalwart of the British theater. She appeared in productions at the Old Vic, the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre and the National Theatre and opposite actors such as Laurence Olivier, Ralph Richardson, Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.
