Pass the sick bag, Alice! They're just a pair of geriatric lefty luvvies bragging about their middle class lifestyles.

 

If there was a real proletarian revolution, those petit bourgeois Trots would be amongst the first against the wall

At least they agree with me on something that's been discussed here before:

 

Vanessa Redgrave: Well, may I say, you’re the same. It’s true of any good actress. By the way, Guardian, could you stop calling actresses “actors”?

Miriam Margolyes: Yes, I’m an actress! On my passport I’m an actress.

Miriam is either telling porkies or she has an extremely old - and illegal - passport. Since when was occupation listed on a passport....

Was about to say that too. It's certainly not currently listed on British ones. I don't know about anywhere else.

She holds Australian citizenship but I don't think occupation is on their passports either.

Vanessa and Miriam are risking being "cancelled" - the woke establishment regards "actress" as a sexist and non-inclusive term.

And as I've said before, it's very silly because acting is one profession where one's sex is relevant. 

If you are casting a male role you are almost always looking for a male actor, and a female actor for a female role. 

So it is practical and convenient to have words which distinguish between the two.

You can have your stage name on the observation page but she uses her birth name. She can have her OBE  mentioned in it.

I know from following some Call The Midwife cast on Twitter that filming has been completed for S10. So I assume she has completed all the voice over work needed for that plus Christmas special. She may have done other voice over stuff as well for S11 depending how far they record.
