Jennifer Jayne

Jennifer Jayne (b. 14 November 1931, Yorkshire, UK - d. 23 April 2006, London, UK) was a British actress of film and television.

Her name at birth was Jennifer Jones, which she altered in order to avoid confusion with the Hollywood actress of the same name. She was born in Yorkshire to theatrical parents' "it never occurred to me to do anything else", she said, than act.

Her film debut was a minor walk-on in "Once a Jolly Swagman" (1948), followed by "The Blue Lamp" (1949). Both of these starred Dirk Bogarde and, coincidentally, the mystery "Black Widow", in which she appeared in 1951, featured Anthony Forwood, Bogarde's lifelong partner.

After guest appearances in "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1956), "The Adventures of Sir Lancelot" (1956) and "Sword of Freedom" (1957), she made logical casting for the next historical adventure series from the film-making division of Lew Grade's"The Adventures of William Tell".

She was a romantic lead in "Raising the Wind" (1961), set in a music academy; she was also the leading lady in a Norman Wisdom vehicle, "On the Beat" (1962).

She married Peter Mullins in 1958, but was not known to have ever had children.
