Stella Tanner


Born - 1 January 1925, Whitechapel, London, England
Died - 26 March 2012

Dark-haired English actress of angular attractiveness who studied at RADA, but began her showbusiness career as one half of the singing Tanner Sisters, a popular duo on such 1950s' British radio comedy programmes as Educating Archie. The act broke up in the early 1960s, and Stella (born Sarah Stella Tanner) reverted to her original love, acting, often playing assertive East Enders. Besides appearances on such TV soaps as EastEnders and Coronation Street, she played cameos in films, among them Murder Most Foul (1964), Ladies Who Do (1965), Otley (1968), Jane Eyre (1970), Fun and Games (1971), Overlord (1975), the TV movie West (1984) and Fogbound (2002), her last. She married the American-born actor David Bauer, but he died in 1973 when only 55.
