Biography

British TV actress Lorraine Chase worked as a model in the 1970s, and gained wider exposure when she appeared in a series of comedic commercials for the Italian drink Campari, which found her showcasing a disarming Cockney accent. The popularity of these ads led to parts on various high-profile English programs, including the hit game show "Blankety Blank" and the kids' series "Worzel Gummidge", in which she portrayed Dolly Clothes-Peg. After roles in the 1980s sitcoms "The Other 'Arf" and "Lame Ducks", Chase largely receded from the spotlight, but later resurfaced with a guest spot on the medical drama "Casualty" in 1998. With her career picking up significant momentum again, she joined the cast of the darkly humorous 2000 crime show "Lock, Stock...", based on Guy Ritchie's hit film "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", and was also featured in a long stint on the soap opera "Emmerdale" as the intimidating Steph Forsythe (formerly Stokes). Chase has additionally appeared in numerous stage productions and has been a prominent presence on the 2011 season of "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!", a British reality-TV show. A familiar English television personality, Chase has also turned up on various talk shows, including "This Morning" and "Daybreak", and has sat in on the popular cooking program "Come Dine with Me".
