Product description

Amanda Barrie has been on the stage since she was three, when she performed at the theatre her grandfather ran. She ran away to Soho at the age of 13 where she became a chorus girl before making her West End lead debut in "Public Mischief" with George Cole. Throughout the 60s and 70s Amanda worked in theatre, television and film - including her famous role as Cleopatra in "Carry on Cleo" - before making her first appearance as Alma Sedgwick in "Coronation Street" in 1981. In this honest account, Amanda not only recalls countless anecdotes from her professional life, she also reflects, with characteristic humour, on her personal life, including her affair with Billy Fury and unconventional marriage to actor Robin Hunter.

Signed copy in good condition. Unmarked but tanned pages, good binding, unbroken spine. Unclipped dust jacket has minor signs of wear.
