Last news on IMDb

1. I found out that Pat McDermott, hair stylist on Tara King episode Love All (1969), died in 2015. Sad



Patricia McDermott became famous in the world as the creator of hairstyle for Princess Leia in Star Wars. Yes, exactly McDermott came up with the iconic “cinnamon buns”. Smile

2. Graham Cruickshank

It was a surprise, it turns the person known as Graham Cruickshank, who played extra in the episode The Sell-Out, was actually Graeme Cruickshank, stage manager.

There is an interview with him, dated 2006, where he tells about his past. Very interesting material, I must say.

He several times mentions his work as an extra on TV in 1960s. For example, one of fragments:

For the next two or three years, I was doing, in between other things, a lot of walk-on and extra work on television, which... There are a few interesting stories about that, because, in those days, most of the programmes went out live or things like that, but I mustn’t go into that now, but if anybody ever wants to talk about the 1960s television, I have quite a bit of experience as an extra and walk-on, where you see a lot of things going on.

After many years, I finally updated the information for Cyd Child on IMDb, since now this is already a little secret for following (with a short search on the Internet):

Cyd Child - stunt performer for Diana Rigg, Linda Thorson and Joanna Lumley.

Born: 1944 (not 1946, as some sources mention) in Chiltern, Buckinghamshire, England, UK

Married: Peter Gallie from 1977.
