Impish-looking, dark-haired, diminutive British comedy actress, a star of the TV sketch series Do Not Adjust Your Set, featuring many of the performers who would soon appear in Monty Python's Flying Circus. Always distinctive and often delightfully daffy, she also appeared in a number of films: A French Mistress (1960), The Silent Weapon (1961), Postman's Knock (1962), The Wild and the Willing (1962), Waltz of the Toreadors (1962), What a Crazy World (1963), Doctor in Distress (1963), Georgy Girl (1966), Far from the Madding Crowd (1967), Start the Revolution Without Me (1969), Percy (1971), Sir Henry at Rawlinson End (1980), Another Time, Another Place (1983) and Saving Grace (2000), her last. She died from bronchitis and dementia complications.
