Biography by Hal Erickson

Educated at the University of England at Nottingham, Freda Jackson made her professional stage bow in 1934. In films, Jackson cornered the market in spiteful (or at the very least, disgruntled) middle-aged shrews. She played such well-known literary harpies as Mistress Quickly in Henry V (1944), Mrs. Joe Gargery in Great Expectations (1947), and "Vengeance" in Tale of Two Cities (1958). Freda Jackson's final film was Clash of the Titans (1981), in which she played three blind witches.
