Mary Ward

Actress

Born - 6 March 1915, Fremantle, Western Australia, Australia
Died - 19 July 2021

Wisp-thin, fair-haired Australian actress who came to England to further her career after appearing in Eureka Stockade (1948). Here she featured in That Dangerous Age (1949), but further film roles were not forthcoming and, after some TV and theatre work, she eventually returned to Australia. Films here included Cry Your Purple Heart Out (1976) and Born to Run (1977), before she committed to dozens of episodes of the hit TV series Prisoner Cell Block H as Mum Brooks. There were a few later movies - Jenny Kissed Me (1985), Backstage (1988) and Amy (1997), her last.
