Did You Know?
[asked if she owns a piece of Upstairs, Downstairs
(1971)] I get a residual for the idea as much as I get a residual for the acting. It's a very low fee. I think I got something like $100 an episode initially for the idea, and my royalty is based on that rate. I've got a saying: "If it had been made in America I'd be Mary Tyler Moore. As it is, I'm Mary Tyler Less."
She was awarded the OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2012 Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to drama.
