Prunella Ransome was an English actress, primarily active on television and films. Born in Croydon, Surrey, Prunella Ransome later lived in Titchfield where her father was a public school headmaster from 1952 to 1958. Ransome studied at Elmhurst School for Dance and began her performing career as a teenager, making her West End debut in a 1959 musical production of Jane Eyre with further West End appearances in Do Re Mi and Oliver!. She later spent five months singing at a cabaret in Athens and upon returning to the UK worked delivering cars for a London automobile dealership prior to being cast in 1965 in the musical stage play The Match Girls. Following that play's 1966 West End transfer, Ransome's performance drew the attention of a producer of the film Far from the Madding Crowd, with a screen test leading to her playing that film's second female lead and her performance earning her a Golden Globe Award nomination. Ransome progressed in her film career playing the female lead in the 1969 film Alfred the Great: however her subsequent screen career was focused almost exclusively on television, Ransome having debuted in that medium in the 1967 serialization of Kenilworth. In the 1970s she had major multi-episode roles in three well-regarded TV drama series: Warship and A Horseman Riding By for the BBC; as well as Dangerous Knowledge for Southern Television. She also appeared in other TV series of the period.
