Patsy Byrne


Born - 13 July 1933, Ashford, Kent, UK
Died - 17 June 2014

Happy-looking, round-faced, brown-haired English actress. Though most of her stage and TV characters were genial, her performance as Nursie in TV's Blackadder suggested she might have made a good Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland. A sprinkling of films amid a heavy TV workload included The Ruling Class (1971), The Alf Garnett Saga (1972), The Class of Miss MacMichael (1979), Britannia Hospital (1982), Mr Love (1985), Hanna's War (1988), Emily's Ghost (1992), The Gingerbread House (1996), Les Miserables (1998) and Kevin and Perry Go Large (2000), her last.
