Leading lady of the Forget Me Not cast, Eleanor Bron, has one of the most impressive CVs we’ve ever come across. In this Fangirl’s guide we’ve limited ourselves to a meagre 10 things that make her fabulous. It could have been a million.
1. She was the first woman ever to appear in a Cambridge University’s Footlights revue
It was 1959. What a boss.
2. She was in the Establishment – a satirical cabaret set up by Peter Cook
The Establishment did the pilot for That Was the Week That Was, the pioneering, hugely influential but short-lived BBC television satire show directed by Ned Sherrin. Eleanor’s third on the left.
3. By the age of 30 she had already appeared on Desert Island Discs
