June Whitfield Book and Novel

June Whitfield - Author


After from graduating from RADA, June Whitfield has been a 'with', and then most decidedly an 'and' to all the comic greats since the late 1940's: Arthur Askey, Tony Hancock, Wilfrid Pickles, Jimmy Edwards, Bob Monkhouse, Ronnie Barker, Benny Hill, Dick Emery, Terry Scott, Frankie Howerd, Roy Hudd, Kenneth Williams, Julian Clary, Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders. Her range has encompassed Shakespeare and the 'Carry OnÂ…' films, Oscar Wilde and 'Absolutely Fabulous', Noel Coward and 'Friends' but she is best known for an iconic run of television comedies starring alongside a galaxy of leading men and for the many parts on radio and television she has made her own: as Eth Glum, wife to Ron, in Take it from Here in the 1950's to Jennifer Saunders' Mother' in Absolutely Fabulous in the 1990's.
