Smith began her stage career as a student, performing at the Oxford Playhouse in 1952, and made her professional debut on Broadway in ''New Faces of '56''. Over the following decades, Smith established herself alongside Judi Dench as one of the most significant British theatre performers, working for the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. On Broadway, she received Tony Award nominations for Noël Coward's ''Private Lives'' (1975) and David Hare's ''Night and Day'' (1979), and won the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for ''Lettice and Lovage'' (1990).

Smith made her film debut in the 1958 film ''Nowhere to Go''. She was given the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the title role of ''The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie'' (1969), and she has also won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for ''California Suite'' (1978). Her other Oscar nominations were for her roles in ''Othello'' (1965), ''Travels with My Aunt'' (1972), ''A Room with a View'' (1985), and ''Gosford Park'' (2001). Other notable films include ''Death on the Nile'' (1978), ''Hook'' (1991), ''Sister Act'' (1992), ''The Secret Garden'' (1993), the ''Harry Potter'' series (2001–2011), ''The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'' (2012), ''Quartet'' (2012), and ''The Lady in the Van'' (2015). Smith has sporadically appeared on television throughout her career, and gained newfound attention and international fame for her role as Violet Crawley in the British period drama ''Downton Abbey'' (2010–2015). The role earned her three Primetime Emmy Awards; she had previously won one for the HBO film ''My House in Umbria'' (2003).

Over the course of her career, Smith has been recognized with numerous honorary awards including the British Film Institute Fellowship in 1993, the BAFTA Fellowship in 1996, and the Society of London Theatre Special Award in 2010.
