Two-time Oscar® winner and Downton Abbey star Dame Maggie Smith, returns to the screen this December in a role she first played on stage sixteen years ago – in Tristar’s upcoming comedy, The Lady In The Van. The award winning, 80 year old actress recreates the role of Miss Shepherd, the true story of a woman who “temporarily” parked her van in writer Alan Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years.
