Sara Kestelman is an English actress, teacher and producer. She joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1968, but left after gaining her first film role in the now cult sci-fi film, Zardoz (1974) alongside Sean Connery. She subsequently appeared with the company in many other roles, including Lady Macbeth in the 1982 production of Macbeth. She has also acted with the Royal National Theatre and won a Lawrence Olivier award for her role in the Sam Mendes directed revival of Cabaret (1993). Her career has been spent mostly in theatre, with supporting roles on television, radio and film. She teaches acting at Central School of Speech and Drama and runs a film company, BASK Films.
This portrait was completed for the Ben Yuri Gallery exhibition focusing on Jewish cultural figures.
