Jean Simmons
in full Jean Merilyn Simmons, (born Jan. 31, 1929, London, Eng.—died Jan. 22, 2010, Santa Monica, Calif., U.S.), British-born American actress who was known for her cool elegance.

At age 14, soon after she entered the Aida Foster School of Dancing, Simmons was persuaded by a talent scout to audition for what would be her debut film role, in Give Us the Moon (1943). Over the next several years she appeared in more than a dozen British films, including Great Expectations (1946), Black Narcissus (1946), and Laurence Olivier’s production of Hamlet (1948), for which she received an Academy Award nomination for best supporting actress.

In 1950 she went to the United States to begin her Hollywood film career, and six years later she became a U.S. citizen. She married the actor Stewart Granger in 1950. After their divorce in 1960, she married the director and writer Richard Brooks; the couple divorced in 1977. Simmons earned a second Academy Award nomination, for best actress, for The Happy Ending (1969), written and directed by Brooks. Her other screen credits include Angel Face (1953), Guys and Dolls (1955), The Big Country (1958), Elmer Gantry (1960), Spartacus (1960), and How to Make an American Quilt (1995).

Simmons made her television debut in Soldier in Love (1967) and in the late 1970s began appearing chiefly in television movies. Among these were The Thorn Birds (1983), for which she won an Emmy Award for outstanding supporting actress in a limited series or special; Great Expectations (1989); Her Own Rules (1998); and Winter Solstice (2003).
