Fiona Shaw, CBE (Hon) (born Fiona Mary Wilson 10 July, 1958) is a leading Irish actress who regularly appears in London theatre, although to international audiences she is probably most familiar for her minor role in the Harry Potter films. She is widely regarded as one of the finest classical actresses of her generation.  
Fiona Shaw was born in County Cork, Republic of Ireland to a mixed-religious couple. She received her degree in University College Cork. After training at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London, she received much acclaim as Julia in the National Theatre production of Richard Sheridan's The Rivals (1983), a role which demonstrated her gift for comedy. Despite her natural comic abilities, Shaw has opted more often than not for roles showcasing her extreme but unaffected emotional intensity. These performances have earned her numerous stage awards.
Other notable theatrical roles include Celia in As You Like It (1984), Madame de Volanges in Les Liaisons Dangereuses (1985), Katherine in The Taming of the Shrew (1987), Winnie in Happy Days (2007), and the title roles in Electra (1988), The Good Person of Sechuan (1989), Hedda Gabler (1991), The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1998) and Medea (2000). She performed T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land as a one-person show at the Liberty Theatre in New York to great acclaim in 1996.
For a number of years, Fiona Shaw has been romantically linked in the press with actress Saffron Burrows.  Neither actress has publicly confirmed or denied the relationship. The two appeared together in the National Theatre's production of The PowerBook, , a play based on the novel of the same name by Jeanette Winterson in which they played lovers.
