THIS IS YOUR LIFE - Jean Kent, stage and screen actress, was surprised by Eamonn Andrews in the foyer of London’s Strand Theatre. She was appearing in the farce No Sex Please We’re British.


Jean’s career began as a chorus girl at London’s Windmill Theatre. She signed to Gainsborough Pictures during the early 1940s, and is now fondly remembered for her roles in many British films, including Fanny By Gaslight, The Wicked Lady, Caravan and Trottie True.
