RIP Adrienne Corri

The actress Adrienne Corri has died at the age of 85

Cori appeared in a number of film roles, and is probably best known for playing Mrs. Alexander in the 1971 Stanley Kubrick film “A Clockwork Orange”. She played Lara's mother in David Lean's 1965 film “Dr. Zhivago” and appeared in the Otto Preminger thriller “Bunny Lake is Missing”.

Other films include “Devil Girl from Mars”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “A Study in Terror” and “Vampire Circus”. She played Therese Duval in “Revenge of the Pink Panther”.

Her television credits include playing Angelica in ‘Sword of Freedom’, Grace Gould in ‘A Family at War’, and Lady Rebecca in ‘Lovejoy’.

She was married to fellow actor David Massey form 1961-1967. Reports that Corri was married earlier to Derek Fowlds are apparently false.
