    Sure many actors have won the triple crown of acting (Tony, Oscar, Emmy aka the Big TOE) for many roles they’ve played. And it seems certain characters (Willy Loman, Blanche Du Bois, Hamlet) help actors land a nomination in whatever medium they appear (theatre, film, or television) but it got me to wonder what real-life person has been characterized into a Triple Crown winning character. 

     And all I think of is Truman Capote and Annie Sullivan

     Truman Capote
    (Tony’89 and Emmy ‘92 for Robert Morse in Tru; Oscar ‘05 for Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote) 

     
    Annie Sullivan (The Miracle Worker) 
    (Tony’59 and Oscar ’62 for Anne Bancroft, and Emmy ’79 for Patty Duke)

     
    I don’t know if this has been discussed before…but just wondering if there’s any other real-life person who become Triple Crown award winning character.

    Queen Elizabeth I (Oscar to Judy Dench in ’98 and Emmy to Helen Mirren in ’05) is there a Tony in her life or in the future?

    There have been multiple women nominated for playing Elizabeth on stage, so it’s pretty likely it will happen at some point.
