Elspet Gray

Post by ctraynor »

The actress Elspet Gray, who certainly charmed me in Catweazle season 2 as the mother, has died aged 83.

RIP

To me, she will always be thought of as Blackadder's mum.
And the hilarious scene with the Spanish Infanta, with Jim Broadbent wonderful as the bizarrely accented translator.

A wonderful actress. I had something of a thing for Chancellor Flavia!

RIP.
