In March original Prisoner star, Mary Ward Breheny, turned 101 -and she’s still open to acting offers.
She appeared as garden loving inmate “Mum” (Jeanette) Brooks in the TEN series in 1979. Appearing for just 13 episodes initially, she reprised her role occasionally until her character died off screen in 1983.
“People still still recognise me from it and it’s been a rather long time now,” she told the Herald Sun.
“It certainly is popular.”
Last appearing in Blue Heelers in 2000, her other credits include Sons and Daughters, Neighbours, The Henderson Kids and Homicide.
Although she has long since retired from the small screen, she hasn’t ruled out ever performing again.
“If someone asked me (to act again), I’d certainly consider it,” she said.
What a great idea! Let’s have a producer pick up the phone please.
