A friend of mine who has worked with this legend tells me that, sadly, she isn't too well.
She has an on going, cronic, back ailment that has been getting worse the last 20 years or so.

She was first choice for Mdm Arcartti in this years revival of 'Blithe Spirit' but her health prevented her from taking the offer.

What an amazing lady and a wonderful talent.

She is one of the most exciting actresses I've had the pleasure of seeing on the stage.

Her Mrs Lovett in the NT production of Sweeney Todd opposite Alun Armstrong/Denis Quilley is a performance I will never forget.

I wonder if she might be able to get involved with the Sondheim on Sondheim show at NT later this year given that actors are not committed for very long??

Her Lovett was/is one of the best.

What a glamourpuss - how she could flutter those eyelids.

And ofcourse she was beautiful.

She was still in fantastic voice at the 30th anniversary performance of Side by Side by Sondheim in 2007.

She's also doing Marple and TV pays a lot better than stage. I would love to see her perform live but sadly I think her health will prevent her doing theatre again outside of the odd concert.

I thought she had done 7 episodes but wasn't filming any more.

I know she was quite happy just being a housewife in the home counties, but it does seem her career has (more or less) ended prematurely.

PS Current pic is not Julia!

Dev

The scans you can see in this thread are from Photobucket but that site was annoying me because (as you can see) it automatically shrinks pics when I upload them.

So I've just uploaded the same on to Flickr where they're a decent size but I can only post the link and not get them directly in to the thread.

Can anyone more IT literate help us here?!

Oops! Very big.

For future reference, when on the page for the photo in Flickr, right click on the image and select "Original". Then right click on the image when it loads, "Copy Link Location" (or equivalent option) and then just paste the link into your message and it should show up as a picture.

Quite true. I don't know if I can be bothered to have a flickr account.

However, i have some lovely scans from the Hunting of the Snark brochure, so maybe...
