Jill Balcon

Actress

Born - 3 January 1925, London, England
Died - 18 July 2009

Dark-haired, girlishly beautiful British actress with richly-modulated voice, daughter of producer Sir Michael Balcon, the driving force behind Ealing Studios. Despite a few early films in featured roles - Nicholas Nickleby (1947), Saraband for Dead Lovers (1948), The Lost People (1949), Highly Dangerous (1950), she remained largely a creature of the theatre, although there was some radio and TV work as well. She married poet laureate Cecil Day-Lewis in 1951 (he died in 1972) - the Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis is her son - and her last film appearance was in Wittgenstein in 1993.
