    (June 21, 1934-December 2, 2009)
    Born in London, United Kingdom
    Portrayed Blanche Hunt on the British soap opera 'Coronation Street' (1974-2009)
    Appeared in the mini-series 'The Forsyte Saga' (1967), 'Nicholas Nickleby' (1968), 'Sense and Sensibility' (1971) and 'The Barchester Chronicles' (1982)
    Before being cast as Blanche, she had one episode appearances on 'Coronation Street' as a policewoman (1961) and a shoplifter (1967).
    She was initially turned down for the role of Blanche and was cast only when actress Patricia Cutts died after appearing in just two episodes.
    Despite being known for her one-liners, she said of Blanche, 'I don't find her funny and don't think I could play her properly if I did.'
    'Coronation Street' co-star William Roache praised her 'amazing dry wit.'
    She won two British Soap Awards for Best Comedy Performance (2005,2008).
    She said, 'If I started trying to play the lines for laughs, they wouldn't come out right and the performance would suffer.'
