  • A well-regarded actress of stage, screen, and film who appeared alongside the legendary Peter Sellers in The Naked Truth (aka Your Past Is Showing) (1957) and was beloved to early British television fans for her role in The Larkins, Peggy Mount also appeared on-stage at some of London's most legendary venues. Born Margaret Rose Mount in Essex, England, in May of 1916, the aspiring actress nearly had her dreams cut short at the age of 14, when her father died and she was forced to learn shorthand and typing to support herself. Later taking the stage to positive notice at both London's Old Vic Theatre and the Bristol Old Vic for Romeo and Juliet and All Things Bright and Beautiful, respectively, Mount found further acclaim and expanded her talents in films such as Sailor Beware! (1956) (she had essayed the role for over 1,000 performances in the stage version at the Strand Theatre the previous year), Ladies Who Do (1963), and Finders Keepers (1966). Later television appearances included such series as John Browne's Body and Lollipop Loves Mr. Mole. Mount would retire in 1998 following an incident in which she lost her sight during a performance of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. After a career of more than 40 years, Peggy Mount died in London in November of 2001, following an extended illness. She was 86.
