The epitome of the familiar-unknown actress, having played dozens of variations on the chirpy working class housewife, busybody and woman-in-the-street. Originally a dancer, she first came into the public eye in TV's 'The Rag Trade' in the early '60s, and had a long run in the dismal motel soap ...'Crossroads'. Other roles in TV included 'Russ Abbott's Madhouse', 'Minder', 'The Sweeney', 'The Bill', and 'Within These Walls', and period pieces like 'The Duchess Of Duke Street' and 'Foyle's War'. Her film career highlights stretch from 'Personal Services', 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' and 'Sir Henry at Rawlinson End', to our old favourite 'Smashing Time'. Oooh, get her!
