Actor
Audrey Fildes was a British actress whose first film credit was the 1947 production While I Live. In 1949, she played the role of Louis Mazzini's mother, who was ostracised by her aristocratic family, in the film Kind Hearts and Coronets. Granddaughter of Victorian painter, Sir Luke Fildes, Audrey showed keen interest in acting while very young. She later related that, while at school, she was directed in a performance of The Merchant of Venice by Alec Guinness. At the performance, he brought Peggy Ashcroft backstage and introduced Audrey to her as "my Portia". During her 20s she enjoyed an active acting career, appearing in such roles as Diana in Jean Anouilh's Ring Round the Moon, directed by Peter Brook and costarring Paul Scofield. She married a Canadian actor, and moved to Ottawa. They had two sons before divorcing. In later years Audrey exhibited more artistry when she became a picture frame restorer and gilder. She was a member of the William Morris Society of Canada.
