Louise Pajo (1940-2020)

Post by rosalyn »

Passed away last month aged 80.

Doctor Who fans are likely to remember her from 'Seeds of Death', Patrick Troughton era.

I remember Louise from two episodes of UFO - 'Kill Straker!' and 'Court Martial'.

That's sad to hear - sobering to think that those young actors and actresses of that era are now in their seventies or or eighties if they are still with us. Those two UFO episodes are among my very favourites although her parts in both were small. She was one of a seemingly large number of antipodeans who spent time acting in the UK around that time. After her return to those parts she also played an early character in "Prisoner: Cell Block H" so she had some role in three cult favourites.

She was also in "The Avengers", "Wish You Were Here", which was a bit of a spoof on "The Prisoner", a Hotel where guests have trouble leaving it.

Very strong performance in "Doctor Who" as Miss Kelly, a lovely Actress.
