Sandy Ratcliff


Born - 2 October 1948, Islington, London, England
Died - 7 April 2019

Born Alexandra Ratcliff, and Sandy by nickname and hair colour, the slightly doleful-looking actress was plucked from nowhere in 1971 to star in Ken Loach's film Family Life. The remainder of her acting career was less than satisfactory, although she did find a home in TV's EastEnders from 1985 to 1989. She disappeared from view after giving her then-boyfriend a false alibi in a murder trial. Other film appearances include those in The Final Programme/The Last Days of Man on Earth (1973), Yesterday's Hero (1979), Hussy (1980), Doll's Eye (1982), Two Foolish Men (1983) and the TV movie Men of the Month (1994), her last.
