Jane Wenham


Born - 26 November 1927, Southampton, Hampshire, Endland
Died - 15 November 2018

Petite brown-haired English actress of rather pinched prettiness, who seemed born to play lost souls, none more notable than the tragic Eva Smith in her film debut, An Inspector Calls (1954). Born Jane Wenham Figgins, she kept acting steadily for the next few decades in subordinate roles: The Teckman Mystery (1954), Make Me an Offer (1955), then into TV drama for the rest of her career, culminating in an appearance as Mrs Bates in a 2010 episode of Downton Abbey. Film star Albert Finney was her first husband.
