Barbara Windsor (1937-    )

British comedy actress.

Windsor attended several professional schools before making her stage debut at the age of 12. At 15 she got a job in the chorus line of a London musical and stayed with the show for the next two years, although she took some minor roles in films during that time. Though she became well known in the London theatrical scene, it was the series of "Carry On" comedies that made her a star. Although she appeared in only nine films in the long-running series (she left because she thought they were getting too risque), she made such an impression as the basically good-hearted but dizzy sexpot that many of the series' fans believe she was in many more than she actually was. She almost didn't get the part originally, as she and series regular Kenneth Williams took an instant dislike to each other (they soon became lifelong friends).
After she left the series Windsor continued her stage and film work, and became a regular in Eastenders as the matriarch of "The Queen Vic", Peggy Mitchell .


Bernard Cribbins (1928-    )

British character actor.

An actor since the age of 14, Cribbins had become a major star on the London stage by his mid-20s, but it was another ten years before he became a national star with comedy hit records such as Right Said Fred and Hole in the Ground and appearances in films that include The Wrong Arm of the Law (1963), Carry on Jack (1963), Carry on Spying (1964), the second Doctor Who film Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD (1966) and as the station porter, Perks, in The Railway Children (1970). He was also the narrator of the British animated children's TV series The Wombles.
