That rarity, a wise actress

Dame June Whitfield:

“Mine is the epitome of the nice middle-class family life,” Whitfield said proudly. She went on to state that she was “a great fan of the middle class. There are millions of them and yet people speak as if it’s some disease.”

  1. “I didn’t really think anything of it at the time. I just kept my head down, did what I was supposed to do and made sure I was no bother — that’s the secret.”

    Story of my life.

  2. Bloke no Longer in Austria

    June Whitfield was one of those actresses one was always happy to see, whether in some creaking film on Talking Pictures, Hancock, Carry On, AbFab and yes even Terry and June.

    She was also president of the old Wimbledon FC


  3. My wife had to serve her in a shop several times. June was not a nice lady to shop assistants.
    20 plus years in retail and June is in the top 5 of worst customers the wife ever had.

    I’ve met and chatted – or tried to chat with – a fair number of TV/Movie “stars” over the years.

    Two that stood out as pleasant normal blokes were Bob Monkhouse and Roger Moore.

    Most obnoxious was a “celebrity (in Sweden)” Swedish comedian – not a language problem, Mrs Pcar is Swedish.

    Never met June Whitfield, but when seen her interviewed/chatting she always came across as having a superiority complex.

  5. What happened to all the gossip the net? There used to be forums like groupiecentral (groupies talk about how good/weird rock stars are at shagging) and there used to be a forum where people bitched about celebs like airhostesses who thought Cilla was an absolute bitch.
