Tara Fitzgerald (1967-) b. Sussex, England.
Stage and screen actress Tara Fitzgerald is the grandniece of actress Geraldine Fitzgerald. She trained at London’s Drama Centre and made her screen debut in the old-fashioned romantic comedy Hear My Song (1991). She subsequently appeared as the wife of a clergyman Hugh Grant in the bohemian drama Sirens (1994). Fitzgerald gained wide recognition alongside Hugh Grant once again in the offbeat comedy The Englishman Who Went up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain (1995), and subsequently appeared as Ewan McGregor‘s love interest in Brassed Off (1996). Soon after Tara co-starred with Rhys Ifans and Joseph Fiennes in the lamentable Rancid Aluminium (2000). Subsequent roles have included WW II drama Dark Blue World (2001) by Czech director Jan Sverák and the romantic comedy I Capture the Castle (2003) adapted from Dodie Smith’s novel. In recent years Tara has been more active in television work including the long-running BBC series Waking the Dead.
