Josephine Tewson

Actress

Born - 26 February 1931, Hampstead, London, England
Died - 18 August 2022

Fluffily blonde comic character actress, a memorable stooge for such English TV comedians as Ronnie Barker, Ronnie Corbett, Dick Emery and Jimmy Tarbuck. TV was her bread and butter, but there was the odd film thrown in: Egghead's Robot (1970), The Troublesome Double (1972), The Strange Case of the End of Civilization As We Know It (1977), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1978), Gabrielle and the Doodleman (1984), Wilt (1989), The Mumbo Jumbo (2000), and the short In Memory (2015), her last. Actor Leonard Rossiter was the first of her two husbands.
