Barbara Flynn is an actress who has had a prolific career over three decades on English television. Her first role has been her biggest, as Freda Ashton on the ITV British drama "A Family at War," about a Liverpool working-class family's life on the home front leading up to and then through World War II. Flynn appeared in 40 episodes over three seasons of the series. The role that next made Flynn more familiar to English audiences was that of Jill Swinburne in the Beiderbecke drama series, beginning in 1985 with the six-episode "The Beiderbecke Affair." Flynn's Swinburne is an English teacher in contemporary England, the other incarnations of which were 1987's "The Beiderbecke Tapes," and 1988's "The Beiderbecke Connection." In 1993, Flynn landed another major part, as Judith Fitzgerald on the crime mystery series "Cracker," which starred well-known English actor Robbie Coltrane as Dr. Eddie 'Fitz' Fitzgerald, a forensic psychologist who helps solve police cases. Flynn appeared on 20 episodes over four seasons of the show. Among later roles was Mrs. Jamieson on the period mini-series "Cranford," where she co-starred alongside such heavyweight English actresses as Judi Dench and Imelda Staunton, from 2007 to 2009. In 2011, Flynn guest starred on the crime drama series "Silent Witness."
