  • Monika Dietrich

    Following the loss of Margaret Nolan, Dave Prowse and Barbara Windsor in recent weeks, I’ve been thinking about the cast of Carry On Henry. Of the credited cast, only four are still with us. Monika Dietrich seems to be the only one with a question mark against her name.

    Does anyone know if she’s still with us? Here’s hoping she is.

    Well she certainly seems to have been healthy & lively enough in her youth.
    I wonder if she still is?

      Married a banker and "retired" in 1971 to raise her son Karl (then 3) says the Daily Mirror
      Was supposed to have been in On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

        I wonder where her husband found the time to run the bank?

          Presumably he didn't keep banker's hours

        No!! Most likely wore someone else out instead.

          Thanks for the lead. I'll see if I can find out if she's still with us.

            I'm just boosting this thread again just in case anyone missed it. I'm very keen to find out if she's still with us, as the remains the missing link in the cast whereabouts for Carry On Henry.

              I wonder if anyone knows the collective noun for a group of bankers ?

                OK Deansid8787, to satisfy your insatiable curiosity, I may have found the lady.
                I can't be 100% sure, but this lady fits the age group (B May 5th 1944) and despite the fact that there are several Monic/ka Dietrich's in the UK, she is the only one who spells her name with a K.
                She is Mrs Monika Swery, married to Albert (B 1934) and they live in Richmond, SW London.
                They have two children Raphael and Sharon. Raphael was born in 1972 about the time she seems to have stopped acting, so that fits.
                On the downside, I couldn't find a mention of her other son Karl (b c 1968).
                If Monika is still in the UK, she might well be this lady.

                  Thank for your reply and for your help! Here's hoping that it is her and she is keeping well. Thanks again, I appreciate it.

                    Been in touch with Monika Dean and sadly it's not the same person
