AGUTTER, Jenny

agutterRecent studies have shown that the average man aged between thirty and forty spent 20{30e2395aaf6397fd02d2c79d91a1fe7cbb73158454674890018aee9c53a0cb96} of his formative years… let’s say ‘contemplating’ the career of Jenny Agutter. And with four touchstone yoof films under her belt – The Railway Children, Logan’s Run, Walkabout and An American Werewolf in London, natch – it’s easy to see why she’s placed in the personal top tens of a whole generation. Add in a slew of more obscure treats like Equus, The Survivor, I Start Counting and that weird dramatisation of some John Betjeman poems (she was miss Joan Hunter Dunn, of course) and you couldn’t ask for a richer canon.

FINEST HOUR: ‘Daddy, my daddy!’ It’ll never grow stale, will it?

    I want to help you, David. To me she will always be Anne the nurse in An American Werewolf In London, where we get to see a fair bit more of Jenny in the shower sex scene.

    She was also Kryten’s creator in Red Dwarf.

    I think she’s been in at least 4 adaptations of The Railway Children.

    She’ll be 66 now, but don’t let that put you off as she still looks excellent.
