Jean Simmons Facts
She was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in recognition of her outstanding contribution to film culture.

In Italy, most of her films were dubbed by Fiorella Betti. She was occasionally dubbed by Dhia Cristiani during the mid-fifties, most notably in The Robe (1953). Other actresses like Miranda Bonansea, Rosetta Calavetta and Rina Morelli also lent their voice to Simmons at some point. From the sixties onwards, Maria Pia Di Meo became her official Italian voice.

Her Hamlet (1948) co-star Laurence Olivier urged the young actress to perfect her craft on the stage; instead she decided to follow her future husband Stewart Granger to Hollywood.
