Trivia:

Slightly-built, instantly recognisable British character actress. Her off-beat facial features (narrow face, very deep-set eyes and long chin) lent themselves ideally to portraying a gallery of eccentric spinsters or nosy busybodies. Memorably effective as Uriah Heep's mother in David Copperfield (1986). See more »
