Actress
    (December 14, 1938- )
    Born in Moercambe, England, United Kingdom
    Birth name was Thora Janette Scott
    Daughter of actress Thora Hird
    Appeared in the films ‘Went the Day Well?’ (1942), ‘Medal for the General’ (1944), ‘The Galloping Major’ (1951), ‘Helen of Troy’ (1956), ‘The Devil’s Disciple’ (1959), ‘School for Scoundrels’ (1960), ‘The Day of the Triffids’ (1962), Paranoiac’ (1963) and ‘Crack in the World’ (1965)
    Was a ‘children’s announcer’ providing continuity links for the BBC’s children’s programming during the early 1950s
    She wrote an autobiography when she was fourteen years old.
    Although ‘The Day of the Triffids’ is probably her best-remembered film, the footage of her and actor Kieron Moore battling triffids while holed up in a lighthouse was a last-minute addition, included only to extend the film’s running time past its original 57 minutes.
    She was married three times and divorced twice. One of her divorces was from singer Mel Torme.
    Although she was listed in the credits of the movie ‘How to Lose Friends & Alienate People’ (2008), she had not returned to acting. Instead, since her character (the mother of Simon Pegg’s character), is seen only in flashbacks, clips of her from the 1956 film ‘Now and Forever’ were used.
    She gave up acting to raise the two children she had with Mel Torme.
    After the death of Anne Francis in 2011, she became the last surviving performer mentioned in the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ song ‘Science Fiction/Double Feature.’
    Film historian William K. Everson dedicated his book ‘Love in the Film’ to ‘Janette Scott, the lovely young star of ‘Now and Forever’ whose vibrant and touching performance in that fifties film is the epitome of what love and romance on the screen used to be.’
