It is with great sadness that TUW can confirm that Fenella Fielding, who so memorably gave the Village its voice in 'The Prisoner' has passed away, following a stroke she suffered a couple of weeks ago.
With an unmistakable voice and incredible acting talent, Fenella had a long career in a variety of roles, but will probably be remembered for her 'Carry On' roles including the classic 'Carry on Screaming'.
She worked twice with Patrick McGoohan, firstly on 'Danger Man' and then, of course, 'The Prisoner' and played a large part at the 50th anniversary celebrations in Portmeirion in 2018, and also contributed exclusive audio announcements for both the Seattle and Elstree events of recent years.
TUW's thoughts go to Fenella's family and friends, especially her best friend Simon McKay. Click HERE for a full obituary from the BBC.
