    Angela Thorne and son Rupert Penry-Jones. Haven't acted together as far as I know. Maybe someone knows better.

    Don't think they worked together. Carol's done plenty of TV and lots of theatre work but no films. Her younger sister also acts.
    Breathtakingly beautiful when very young but then lost a lot of weight and always seemed too thin. Both sisters good actresses and dolly with it.

    1] When you getting married?

    2] No, I'm not buying you a wedding present.

    3] And no, I'm not jealous.

    I knew they were brothers but I don't think Francis Matthews & Paul Shelley ever acted on screen together!

    Peter Graves and James Arness, brothers.

    Richard Briers and Terry-Thomas, cousins once removed.

    When first encountered Mr. Dotrice and thought he was a doddering old man!

    It does! Thanks.

    Roy Dotrice was a wonderful actor btw.

    Matthew Garber, Karen Dotrice's fellow star in a couple of films, died of hepatitis in 1977 at the age of only 21.

    'The Three Lives of Thomasina' fascinated me as a child, because you saw the cat go to 'heaven'. I then believed it was the real thing.



    Very different from my own presumed visit to the afterlife, when I fetched up in a bloody railway station! Though that is not unusual, so I have read.
