After winning the London Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actress (for Steaming) in 1980, Blethyn made her screen debut, starring in the play Grown Ups as part of the BBC's Playhouse strand.
Directed by Mike Leigh, their first collaboration marked the start of a professional relationship which would later earn both of them huge acclaim.
Her mother, Louisa Kathleen (née Supple; – 1992), was a housewife and former maid, who met Blethyn's father, William Charles Bottle (5 March 1894–c.
1984) in approximately 1922 while working for the same household in Broadstairs, Kent.
She is the recipient of several accolades, including one Golden Globe, one BAFTA, and two Academy Award nominations.
Blethyn pursued an administrative career before enrolling in the Guildford School of Acting in her late 20s.
She subsequently joined the Royal National Theatre and gained attention for her performances in Troilus and Cressida (1976), Mysteries (1979), Steaming (1981), and Benefactors (1984), receiving an Olivier nomination for the latter.
Witches received generally positive reviews, as did Blethyn, whom Craig Butler of All Media Guide considered as a "valuable support" for her performance of the mother, Mrs Jenkins.
Blethyn followed this with roles in Shakespearean adaptations for the BBC, playing Cordelia in King Lear and Joan of Arc in Henry VI, Part 1.
She also appeared with Robert Bathurst and others in the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy series Dial M For Pizza.
