Happy Birthday Brenda Blethyn!

Today, February 20th, is the 68th birthday of two-time Academy Award Award NomineeBrenda Blethyn, best known to us P&P fans as Mrs. Bennet, the Bennet girlsmother in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film.

After twenty years of hard work on stage and both television and films, there are not many other actresses who deserved the success, recognition and stardom which Brenda Blethyn has now achieved.

Born in (February 20th) 1946 in Ramsgate in Kent, England, she started her career at British Rail in the 1960s. Saving money during her time there, she took a risk and enrolled herself at the at The Guildford School of Acting in Guildford, Surrey, England and then left her British Rail years behind. Her risk had paid off, by the mid-1970s she was working on stage, eventually joining the National Theatre Company in 1975. (Read more of her Bio on IMDB!)

Watch: a preview trailer of ABC's new medical drama series 'Black Box' starring Kelly Reilly premiering April 24th!

Kelly Reilly's upcoming new limited (13 episodes) TV series, Black Box will premiere on ABC on April 24th, which is about a little over 2 months from now. The official website for the series is now up and has been added on ABC's site (under shows section). Looks like Kelly's character's first name Elizabeth (as first mentioned when the new series was announced last year), is no longer that name as it's been changed to Catherine (as now listed on the series' website). So, her character's name is now Dr. Catherine Black and not Dr. Elizabeth Black (as it was previously referred to). The "The" on the title has been dropped as well and is now just called Black Box.

Watch the preview trailer for Black Box here.
