I thought recently about creating such a topic, but I wanted to start with something new. Finally, this happened.

Now I'm working on an episode Never, Never Say Die for Steedumbrella, and just now found out what turns Karen Ford, who played in the mentioned episode, is married since July 1988 for Rio Fanning, who appeared in two episodes of the series. Shocked
I checked, actually, the information did not really pass anywhere else in any source relating to television and cinema.

If it's interesting how I came to it, it started with a small riddle - I thought it was interesting that the email address Karen Ford was combined with Rio Fanning. So I went to her Facebook page, where she was mentioned as Karen Fanning and there it was mentioned that she is wife of Rio.

So, look at the couple Rio Fanning and Karen Ford

Rio Fanning

Full name: James Arnold Rio Fanning

Born: November 7, 1931 in Ireland

Danvers in episode Dead Man's Treasure (1967)



Lane in episode False Witness (1968).




Karen Ford

Born February 1946 (I'm not sure for the date of February 9 as indicated on the IMDb and some other sites, because on Facebook Page of Karen one of the congratulators pointed to "Belated" on mentioned date).

Nurse in episode Never, Never Say Die (1967)



Info already posted on IMDb for these performers. Wink

Sadly that now the name Dorinda is not on the Peter's page on the IMDb, although recently it was. Confused

Their respective Wikipedia pages still mention that they were briefly married in the early 1950s. The reasons for the union not lasting long should be obvious given Wyngarde's sexual orientation.

Wow, I just found out what turns out to be Ivy Baker, wardrobe supervisor on some Tara King episodes, was (or is) wife Robert Jones, production designer for color Avengers episodes.

So they worked together on more than a dozen Avengers episodes. Wink

Do we know if Robert Jones is still alive (oh how I'd love to see any of his design drawings!)?
