"She was eventually expelled from her Catholic secondary school for telling a rude joke".
Christie completed her education in France where she learnt to speak French language as well as Italian.
She first appeared in TV in the BBC Sci-fi series A for Andromeda in 1961.
She was born at Shinglijan Tea Estate, Chabua, British India, in 14th April, 1941. "It is a surprise that someone so steeped in the class systems and traditionalist expectations of the British Empire should become an actress," an author expresses their opinion in a short biography of Christie, "and more so an icon for the period of cultural change that swept away these systems and expectations." Christie grew up at Shinglijan and stayed there until she was six when her father sent her back to England for an education. Later Christie told Tim Adams in an interview that she felt very lonely in England.
"She hated the school and hated being away from her mother," writes Tim Adams in The Guardian.
She had also earned nomination for Oscars for Mc Cabe & Mrs.
Miller (1971), Afterglow (1997) and Away from Her (2006).
