Victoria Wood


Born - 19 May 1953, Prestwich, Lancashire, England
Died - 20 April 2016

Gawky blonde funny-girl with homely features, a brilliant writer and comedienne who made too few films. Her big-screen appearances were limited to a video version of her hit TV series Acorn Antiques (1987), The Wind in the Willows (1996) and The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse (2005). As well as her stand-up comedy, and her TV series (often in harness with Julie Walters), she played character roles in the TV movies Housewife, 49 (2006), Ballet Shoes (2007) and Eric and Ernie (2011). She died from cancer.
