Pat Ashton


Born - 28 February 1931, Wood Green, London, UK
Died - 23 June 2013

Fresh-faced, young-looking, bubbly British blonde, mostly in comedy, notably the TV series On the Buses and Thick As Thieves. A student of tap dancing and singing in her early years, she organised concert parties in post-war times before moving on to a stage and TV career. After a film debut in Half a Sixpence (1967), in which she'd appeared on stage, she made On the Buses (1971), Nearest and Dearest (1972), Mutiny on the Buses (1973 and The Optimists of Nine Elms (1973), before becoming immersed in television. Later films included Party Party (1983) and Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984), her last.
