Telegraph obit for Henryetta Edwards (IMDb), a supporting actress in British cinema and stage during the 30s–50s.

She died May 1st and was aged 95. Her career never really took off but she was well known in wider society as her parents were director Henry Edwards (1882–1952) and silent-era actress Chrissie White (1898–1985).

The illustrator, writer, university professor, literary critic and director of the magazine Atril has died in Barcelona at the age of 48 and has left the children's and young adult book sector, where he was well known and appreciated, in a state of shock.

In 2008 he began to publish illustrated albums: he debuted with "El dibujante de osos" (2008), in which he told the story of a cartoonist who travelled to the North Pole to paint the last remaining species of bear; he continued with "The Perfect Child" (2013), about a model young man who, at night, when no one sees him, dresses up, and five years later came "The Happy Days" (2018), centered on a boy's discovery of homosexual love.

One of the illustrations of "The Happy Days", by Bernat Cormand:

Actor Stuart Damon (who I think is a DDP pick - he was in 2019) best known this side of the pond for playing Craig Stirling in The Champions, being reported dead: 

Think that just leaves William Gaunt from that show.

If true, Stuart Damon is a List of the Missed, as he doesn't appear to have been picked this year.

Naturally, I've picked William Gaunt.

So i am guessing he was Monicas' husband. Still Monica herself will likely stay until the shows 60th anniversary on April 1, 2023
