Some Facts
She was awarded a Lifetime British Comedy award in 1991
In her later years she lived in the eccentric Honeypot Cottage (made of circular rooms) on the banks of the Thames in Berkshire, with her collection of stray cats.
She was dyslexic and always found it hard to learn scripts
She was created an Officer of the Order of British Empire (OBE) in the New Year's Honours List for 1986. The official notice simply read "Miss Beryl REID, Actress" without the common citation such as "for her services to drama".
Won Broadway's 1967 Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic) for "The Killing of Sister George," a role she recreated in the film version of the same name, The Killing of Sister George (1968).
