Profile Bio Text
Jennifer Ann Agutter (born 20 December 1952) is an English actress whose notable roles include Tessa Phillips in the British TV drama series Spooks. She also played Alex Price in An American Werewolf in London, Jessica 6 in Logan`s Run, Joanne Simpson in Child`s Play 2 and Jill Mason in Equus. Agutter came to television audiences as Kirsty in the twice-weekly BBC series, The Newcomers. Kirsty was the daughter of the new managing director, but Agutter could appear only during school holidays and was listed in credits as Jennifer. Later she appeared as Roberta in the BBC children`s series The Railway Children and played the same part in Lionel Jeffries` 1970 film of the book. Her ingenuousness led to a more serious role in the thriller I Start Counting (1969). She also won an Emmy for her television role as Fritha in the Hallmark Hall of Fame production of The Snow Goose (1971).
Agutter moved to Hollywood at 21 and appeared in a number of films over the next decade, including The Eagle Has Landed (1976), Logan`s Run (1976), Equus (1977), Sweet William (1980), and An American Werewolf in London (1981). Since 1990, Agutter has brought up her son and her work has been in sound recordings and supporting charities, notably the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, of which she is a patron (she is also a carrier of the disease). She was a guest in series 6 of Red Dwarf, and appeared in the TV series TECX, The All New Alexei Sayle Show, and And The Beat Goes On. In 2000, she made her third appearance in The Railway Children, produced by Carlton TV and this time playing the mother. In 2002, Agutter featured in the BBC television series Spooks and in 2007, she starred in the first episode of the new series of David Jason`s ITV television series Diamond Geezer. In 2007, she also guest-starred in the Doctor Who audio drama The Bride of Peladon. Agutter says her enduring popularity comes from having grown up on film, that audiences relate to her characters through their own experiences. She believes the innocence of characters she played in early films combined with the costumes and nudity in later adult roles such as Logan`s Run (1976), Equus (1977) and An American Werewolf in London (1981) are "perfect fantasy fodder".
Agutter remained single in Los Angeles, and it has been reported she never lived with a man until she was married. In 1989, at an arts festival in Bath, she met Johan Tham, a Swedish hotelier who was a director of Cliveden Hotel in Buckinghamshire. In 1990, she became pregnant by Tham and they married on 4 August. Their son Jonathan was born on 25 December 1990. They live in Camberwell, London. Agutter owns a second home on The Lizard, the most southerly point on the English mainland.
