I met Billie Whitelaw when she came to the Bradford Playhouse (then the Priestley Playhouse) to promote her autobiography Billie Whitelaw… Who he?.

I was the theatre’s historian and we had a chat. She went to the drama classes run by the Playhouse, and had found and grateful memories of them (the Playhouse is not mentioned in her Wiki).

She was an attractive and charming person. She died 2 days ago.
