The Authorized Biography of Prunella ScalesLarge Print - 2005
The characters Prunella Scales has played are some of the best-loved - and most diverse - on stage or screen. To some she is Sybil Fawlty, the terror of Torquay, to others the reincarnation of Queen Victoria - or any other of a host of extraordinary women. That she can assume so diverse a range of personalities and make them her own is the cornerstone of a career that has spanned more than five decades. But as Teresa Ransom discovers, it is her own story - her memories and experiences - that makes these characters so memorable and real. Interviews with Prunella's family, including her husband and son, the actors Timothy and Sam West, and collaborators across the years, such as Richard Briers, John Cleese, Geraldine McEwan and Andrew Sachs, provide sparkling anecdotes and further insights. Through this biography a portrait emerges of the intriguing and dedicated woman behind her many familar masks.
