Honor Blackman looks back at acting career

Honor Blackman reflects on her life in her self-penned show Honor Blackman as Herself, which visits Worthing’s Connaught Theatre on January 25.

The actress, who is best-known for her roles in The Avengers and Goldfinger, has had a career on stage, in television and in films, which has extended over 60 years. In celebration of more than six decades of performance, she takes to the stage as herself.

The performance takes the form of a Q&A session during which Honor speaks candidly with British stage director, lecturer and professor Richard Digby Day.

She tells stories of growing up during the Second World War, her rise to stardom, her success in television’s The Avengers, and her casting as Pussy Galore opposite Sean Connery as James Bond.

Honor will also share anecdotes about her family, friends and colleagues with audiences for the first time. She will reveal the details of Hollywood machinations, speak of the necessity to rebuff producers who were eager to make her a star as well as discuss the hilarities of filming nude scenes.

There will also be the chance to hear Honor perform some of the songs that have provided the soundtrack to her life.

The show is at 7.30pm. Call 01903 206 206 or visit www.worthingtheatres.co.uk .
