reidIt’s like conducting a clandestine affair. There’s Our Beryl, dear old comedy actress of Two-Way Stretch and St Trinian’s fame, all prim and proper and scones for tea. And then you have, after lights-out, she transforms into a sadistic crypto-lesbian telly nun in The Killing of Sister George, the female third of a triangular mock marriage in Entertaining Mr Sloane, and of course a toad-worshipping immortal Satanist with an unfeasibly groovy front room in undead biker romp Psychomania. How many agents can one actress have?
