Number of filmed Leigh projects: 4
Consummate actress of film, stage and television, Marion Bailey has appeared in four Mike Leigh films from Meantime in the 80s to his most recent release, Mr Turner. Possibly my favourite of her performances for Leigh was as the tragic lush Carol in All or Nothing. She has also performed in Leigh's 1981 stage play Goosepimples (which earned her a Theatre Critics' Award Nomination for Most promising Newcomer) as well as 2011's Grief. She is also Mike Leigh's partner.
