    Surprised to see there is no thread for Susan.....



    Isn't she lovely ?



    I have just been listening to Susan with Peter Gilmore on the new CD of the 1960 stage musical Follow that Girl - so charming....



    I admit she doesn't exactly have a strong singing voice, but it doesn't really matter !



    In 1960 she was appearing (and singing.....) on Lunchbox for mid-day Anglia television, and at about this time Susan had an early starring role in this feature film......

    One of her first movie roles was as "Cynthia" a dopey debutante in Expresso Bongo. Here she is casting admiring glances at Cliff Richard.

    Yep, here she is on Anglia's first day, flirting outrageously with the host, who seems to be having a bad hair day, and pronounces piano as pi-aano

    , maybe it ties in with the song.

    Very self-concious peformance from all of them, but it was early days.



    Here's her first U.S. appearance from 1961, affecting an American accent.

    It took me a long time to warm up to Susan Hampshire as an actress. I first encountered her as "Fleur" in the 1967 version of "The Forsyte Saga", and since I was solidly in the "Irene"/"Young Jolyon" camp, and she was "Soames'" daughter, I really wasn't fond of her (I was in my early teens, so sue me).



    It wasn't until I saw her as "Glencora" in "The Pallisers" some ten years later, that I really began to grudgingly like her. I've liked her in everything I've seen her do since. I'm very fond of "Molly" from "Monarch of the Glen".



    And having gone back in the last few years and re-watched "The Forsyte Saga", I have to admit she's a heck of an actress.

    A fine actress, beautiful to look at - and not like anyone else.

    Probably why she has had such a good career!



    Always liked her, especially as Molly in Monarch of the Glen, and I'd put her in a very select group of ladies who are fine actresses, beautiful and seem to be genuinely lovely people.

    She has a stunning natural beauty that comes from deep within and she has struggled with severe dyslexia all of her life - even before anybody knew what it was.

    I've seen her close up - and she IS a genuinely lovely person.



    As Bats would say - I'd snog her!

    She had a record issued by Decca in the mid 60's "When Love Is True" which is available on the Deram cd The Girls' Scene

    She and Nicky Henson a lovely couple....

    It's very sad that Susan's husband, Sir Eddie Kulukundis, now has dementia.

    I recognise her from various roles in my collection but cannot put a finger on them-was she in 'Poldark' perchance?

    I've always though this was Susan Hampshire (who I loved in Dangerman) in a cameo appearance, what do you think?
