Diana Wynyard began her career as an actress at the 1925 Globe Theater in London's West End and closed in 1927 for two years at the Liverpool Playhouse Co.. She had her breakthrough in 1932 as a site of Basil Rathbone on Broadway in The Devil Pass. She got a contract at MGM, which she uses in addition to the three siblings in the Barrymore-not necessarily historically accurate film Rasputin: The demon of Russia. Subsequently, they generally played well-bred ladies of high society. She was nominated for her performance in the film version of Noel Coward's Cavalcade of the Academy Award as best actress.
The following films you did not bring the hoped-for breakthrough and Wynyard returned to London. For five years they did not happen in movies. Only at the beginning of World War II she worked with in addition to Anton Walbrook in Gaslight.
Afterwards, she focused again on the stage and celebrated Trimumphe in the London production of Lillian Hellman anti-Nazi drama Watch on the Rhine. In addition, she played Lady Macbeth was the Gertrude in Hamlet, and stood as Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing on the stage. In 1947 she had her last good movie role in the adaptation of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband as Lady Chiltren.
In her last years was Diana Wynyard who had been married from 1943 to 1947 with the director Carol Reed, again in several modern plays, so in 1957 in Tennessee Williams Camino Real, or 1964 in Max Frisch's Andorra.
