Glynis Johns’ Family Advocates for Recognition on Her 100th Birthday as One of the Oldest Living Actors

Glynis Johns, a Hollywood star from the Golden Age, turns 100 on October 5. She’s had an impressive career with 30 plays, 60 films, and numerous awards. Despite her contributions, she’s never received the prestigious title of Dame in the UK.

Born in 1923, Johns started in London theaters in the 1930s and made her film debut in 1938’s “South Riding.” She’s known for roles in films like “Mary Poppins,” “Miranda,” and “The Sundowners.”
