TriviaMother of director Michael Lindsay-Hogg, and clinical psychologist, Susan Scheftel. Her Broadway debut in 1938 was in the Mercury Theatre production "Heartbreak House" with fellow ex-Gate Theatre performer, Orson Welles who had been impressed by her talent back in Dublin. She is the niece of Irish actress Shelah Richards, who brought her into Dublin's Gate Theatre, where both first worked with Orson Welles. Fitzgerald, in turn, is the grand-aunt of contemporary actress Tara Fitzgerald (Sirens (1993)), who continues the family tradition, along with Geraldine's son, director Michael Lindsay-Hogg. Once Vivien Leigh's school mate, she became a childhood and lifelong friend of Irish actress Maureen O'Sullivan. Received critical kudos for her role as Mary Tyrone in "Long Day's Journey Into Night" on Broadway in 1971 opposite Robert Ryan. First husband Edward Lindsay-Hogg was an aristocrat who aspired to be a songwriter. The couple moved to New York from England in 1938 to further his ambitions. Second husband Stuart Scheftel was the grandson of Isador Straus, the co-owner of the R.H. Macy Co. who went down on the Titanic in 1912 along with Scheftel's grandmother. Scheftel, a baby at the time, was scheduled to sail with them, but caught a cold and was left behind in England with his nurse. He grew to become a prosperous businessman whose accomplishments include co-founding New York's Pan-Am Building. He first got a crush on Fitzgerald when he saw her on screen in Wilson (1944) and persuaded a mutual friend, actor / director Martin Gabel, to arrange an introduction. A role in Rachel, Rachel (1968) required her to sing. Displeased with the results, she took voice lessons. She later became a cabaret artist. Her show "Streetsongs" was a nightclub hit and appeared three times on Broadway over the years. Reportedly a distant relative of Irish author James Joyce, her father's law firm, D. & T. Fitzgerald, is mentioned in Joyce's classic novel "Ulysses". His sister once worked for this law firm. Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume 7, 2003-2005, pages 8120184.
