Very 1964

Jane Asher at home in Wimpole Street, London, in 1964 - the year 18 year old me arrived in London, and saw her that year in Roger Corman's wonderful MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH. I saw her on the stage too in '67 (or was it '68?) in The Bard's A WINTER'S TALE with Laurence Harvey. I only went to it as Jane was in it. One marvellous fact about Jane: she has never traded on her Beatles connection, and is still just as fascinating and still working now, and married to cartoonist Gerald Scarfe, Thanks to Colin again for finding the photo. 
Right: Jane as Lady Bracknell in 2011.
