Margaret Furse biography

Born to well known Punch Magazine illustrator Arthur G. Watts and Phyllis Watts (nee Gordon) in 1911, Margaret married Roger Furse and became involved in the world of the theater - specializing in costume design - beginning at the end of World War Two. Furse's connection to Sir Laurence Olivier undoubtedly opened many doors. Nominated for a number of Academy Awards she was awarded Best Costume for Anne of The Thousand Days. She and Furse eventually divorced and she remarried author Stephen Watts (though maintaining the Furse last name professionally) with whom she remained until her death in 1974.
