In 1961, she began her acting career in a BBC television series, and the following year, she had her first major film role in a romantic comedy. Christie was born on 14 April 1941 in Singlijan Tea Estate, Chabua, Assam, India, then part of the British Empire. She first gained notice as Liz, the friend and would-be lover of the eponymous Billy Liar (1963) played by Tom Courtenay. It was 1965 when Christie became known internationally. Schlesinger directed her in her breakthrough role, as the amoral model Diana Scott in Darling, a role which the producers originally offered to Shirley MacLaine. She had a major supporting role in Sidney Lumet’s Power (1986), but generally avoided appearances in large budget films and appeared in non-mainstream films. That same year, she also appeared in two other high-profile films: Wolfgang Petersen’s Troy and Marc Forster’s Finding Neverland, playing Kate Winslet’s mother.
