R.I.P. GAYE EASTWOOD
The Unmutual Website is sad to report that passing of another lady who appeared as an extra in 'The Prisoner', with the news that Gaye Eastwood has died at the age of 104.
A lovely local character who lived life to its fullest, Gaye will be fondly remembered by those who attended 'Prisoner' conventions in the 1970s and 1980s, including those who saw her, and her late husband Richard (who could be seen in several scenes in 'Free For All' as the top hatted man on the balcony scenes), interviewed by David Jones in the Queens' Hotel Porthmadog in 1988.
Both Mr and Mrs Eastwood were always more than happy to chat about their time on the series, and even appeared in the first 'Prisoner Fan Film', entitled 'By Public Demand', and were both wonderful company. A transcript of highlights from Gaye and Richard's interview appearance alongside other extras can be read HERE.
With thanks to David Eastwood and John and Helen Moran for this news item.
