Jane Merrow is a wonderful actor - probably best known for her role as Alais in "The Lion In Winter" costarring Katharine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
I remember her best however, for her work on TV in the 1960's - in such TV classic's as Danger Man (Secret Agent in the US), The Prisoner, The Saint, Mission Impossible, Mannix, Police Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man and many others - as well as in movies such as Night Of The Big Heat along side Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, Hands of the Ripper, The System, etc. She played the lead role in a BBC adaptation of Lorna Doone, which unfortunately, tapes or recordings no longer exist.
In addition to writing, she continues to work - I would suggest everyone check out her recent short films Cougar, and About Andy.
In this guide - Jane offers classic advice for those considering entering a profession she has known and performed in with such excellence. I can only hope she has a sequel planned - as I am sure she has many more interesting stories to tell along with her valuable advice.
