Liz Smith is a familiar face to TV viewers. Perhaps best recognized for her portrayal of Nana in THE ROYLE FAMILY, she has appeared in many TV series, including THE VICAR OF DIBLEY, and films such as CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. OUR BETTY is Liz's life story, from her lonely childhood in Scunthorpe with her beloved grandparents, to her marriage and children; through divorce and poverty, and working in dead-end jobs for years. She was working at Hamleys toy store when she received the phone call that would change her life: director Mike Leigh wanted her for an improvised film called BLEAK MOMENTS. At fifty years old, Liz's career had taken off.
