British actress Fenella Fielding dead at 90

Former Carry On actress Fenella Fielding has died, aged 90.
Fielding suffered a stroke two weeks ago and died on Tuesday (11Sep18), according to her representative.
Her acting career began in 1952 and she appeared in the Carry On films Carry On Regardless and Carry On Screaming! in the 1960s.
She was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in Queen Elizabeth II’s 2018 Birthday Honours List.
A statement from a spokeswoman reads: “We are very sad to announce that Fenella Fielding OBE passed away… This follows a severe stroke two weeks ago. During that time, she has been very comfortable and always looked tranquil and divine. And always wearing her eyelashes!
“Miss Fielding was an incredible talent. That voice! A unique woman, much loved by family, friends and fans. She will be missed tremendously.”
Born in London, she was the younger sister of former Conservative member of the House of Lords Baron Feldman.
She was a regular on stage and screen in the U.K., appearing in shows like The Avengers and The Morecambe & Wise Show, and in Shakespeare plays.
But she is perhaps best know for her role as Valeria in Carry On Screaming!
She released a memoir, Do You Mind If I Smoke?, last year (17).
