Now she is known to have been born in 1931 Barbara Young (Last of the Summer Wine, Coronation Street I, Claudius) can be added to the list.

 

If you doing a 1933 list anytime some suggestions

Joan Collins

Caroline Blakiston

Shelia Hancock 

Sian Phillips

Derek Martin

Barbara Knox

Keith Baxter (Lots of TV plays in the 1950’s/1960’s)

 


Haven’t forgotten just haven’t had time to start it yet.

 

That list keeps growing and growing. Not many names are dropping!

It does seem like many actors have good longevity.

Sir Ian McKellen healthy enough to pose for selfies on the streets of Lviv:

 

 

Last night I went to see the 'Posh Panto' Mother Goose which starred 83 year old Sir Ian McKellen and John Bishop.

 

Judging by his performance I would say he should not trouble us in the next few years.

Turns out her mother in law was Shirley Dynevor-White, an actress who worked with Joan Littlewood and went on to have several screen appearances before becoming a stage manager for Corrie.

 

Therefore notable in her own right and indeed has garnered a Guardian Obit: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2023/jan/25/shirley-dynevor-white-obituary

Which was written by her son and Sally’s husband screenwriter Tim Dynevor.

Dementia from 2009 so fair chance she never got to realise Phoebe becoming an international star.

Talking Pictures reporting on their FB page that Thea Gregory has died

Our thoughts are with the Gregson family today as we have been informed that Thea Gregory, has gone to the cinema in the sky.
Thea began her career in theatre under her real birth name of Ida Reddish, before (as Thea Gregory) appearing in nine British films between 1950 and 1956, including The Weak and the Wicked with her husband, John Gregson. Their marriage in 1947 was a happy union and blessed with six children.
Several years ago Thea and some of their children gave an exclusive interview to #TalkingPicturesTV and became great friends with the channel. It was a real honour to have known you. Rest in Peace - reunited with John.

Thea Gregory gets a full Telegraph Obit, so that should probably allow some Wiki tidying: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/obituaries/2023/01/26/thea-gregory-obituary-actress-john-gregson/
