Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Fawlty Towers (1975)] People say that nobody but [John Cleese] could have played Basil; it's just as true that nobody but [Andrew Sachs] could have played Manuel, even though there was a time when Andrew, who was German by birth, wanted to play the character in German. The character became iconic.

Trivia:

She appeared in two adaptations of the 1970 epistolary memoir "84, Charing Cross Road": Play for Today: 84, Charing Cross Road (1975) and 84 Charing Cross Road (1987). She played Ginny in the former and the Lady from Delaware in the latter. See more »
