Jennie Stoller obituary

Actor with a remarkable stage presence admired for leading roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal Court

Jennie Stoller, who has died of cancer aged 72, was an outstanding actor who had a striking stage presence, a unique quality of strength and stillness, and a deep mezzo voice of velvety richness. She was Helena in the 1972 world tour of Peter Brook’s celebrated “white box” production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream for the Royal Shakespeare Company, played the title role of Eleanor Marx in a 1977 television series and the accommodating and sympathetic performer Mrs Kendal in the first production of Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man (also 1977).

She also appeared in the television sci-fi fantasy series Sapphire and Steel as Annabelle Harborough in Assignment Five: Doctor McDee Must Die (1981).
