Description:
Daisy Bertha Mary "Margaret" Scudamore (13 October 1884 – 5 October 1958) was an English actress who began in ingenue roles.

Life and career

Scudamore was born in Portsmouth, the youngest of five children of Clara (née Linington) and William George Scudamore, a shipwright at HM Portsmouth, all residing at 7 Melborurne Place, Southsea. She left home aged 18 and found her way to the offices of theatrical agent Sir John Denton. Sir John, mistaking her for Mary the young daughter of a well known actor Frank Scudamore, gave her Scudie's address at Castelnau Mansions, Barnes. Daisy promptly presented herself as a long lost daughter, apparently unaware that he too thought his name (Frank Davis) lacked pedigree and had changed it to Fortunatus Augustine Davis Scudmore.

She married the actor Roy Redgrave in 1907 and their son Sir Michael Redgrave carved a distinguished cinema and theatre career. After her second marriage to Captain James P (Andy) Anderson, by whom she had a daughter Peg, she adopted the name of Margaret Scudamore and continued acting in character roles.

Her grandchildren Corin Redgrave, Lynn Redgrave and Vanessa Redgrave and great-grandchildren Jemma Redgrave, Joely Richardson, Natasha Richardson and Carlo Nero have successfully followed the family tradition into acting.
