Read in German newspaper The Bild (for 14 march 1976) that Marianne Broome, swimmer in Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976, was one of the candidates for the role of Charley (Purdey) in TNA. Smile

[img][/img]lumleyleglogan She was a Calendar Girl in 1976...Sun Pg.3 and if she did fill Purdey's boots would have been 21yrs. old. at the time. She'd certainly have been the Fittest Avenger Girl of all and would physically have been by far the most impressive and very different from Joanna Lumley's stylish but somewhat wimpish Purdey !

This appears as The Bild was making news up as the final day of auditions and screentests for The New Avengers took place at Pinewood Studios seven weeks earlier on January 27th and Marianne Broome was not present. In short Joanna Lumley had already been cast at this time.

Mike, so you have full list of candidates? Great.

Now I thought, might be there is possibility, that Marianne Broome was one from girls at an early stage of casting, and newspaper Build just exaggerated news by including her in own list as one of the thirty?

Well actually, if they did these news, she had to be somehow related to TNA in some way, I think. Confused
