I'm watching the Canadian film High-Ballin' (1978) right now and unexpectedly stumbled upon a familiar face that I watched in The New Avengers. Upon examination, it turned out that the prolific actress Kay Hawtrey played uncredited role as the Shopkeeper in the episode The Gladiators (1977). Shocked



My surprise increased even more when I looked at the Aveleyman website - Kay Hawtrey was already listed there in the mentioned episode (obviously it was added not so long ago, as I regularly watch the actors from our series on different bases).

Also, another surprise can be found here (screenshot from TNA):

Curiously, when I was working at the IMDb datebase for Canadian TV plays, I walked through Kay Hawtrey many times and saw her early image - who would have thought she appeared in New Avengers. Shocked

Great find, Denis!
I wouldn't call her a famous actor though, perhaps a prolific or in demand character actor would be more accurate. I've certainly never heard her name before, even though I remember watching "Read All About It!" when I was a kid.

I took your advice, Piers, and changed the word "famous" to "prolific". Wink
However, for me personally, she will remain famous - she was in a lot of well-known films and there it was often mentioned about her in the newspapers which I have studied. Wink

I would concur with Dissolute on this opinion...there are many character actors, who are visual work horses...and carve out a career or niche..you may not know their names...but you recognize their faces etc...
