Actress Miriam Karlin, known for her role in television sitcom The Rag Trade and many notable screen roles, died this morning at the age of 85.
The star, who also appeared in films such as A Clockwork Orange and Room At The Top, died in a London hospital after a battle with cancer.
Miriam had a stage, film and television career that spanned over 50 years and is still warmly known for her portrayal of the union rep in ‘The Rag Trade’ with the famous catchphrase of ‘everybody out!’
Her friend David Pugh, the West End theatre producer, said: ”She was a wonderful woman.”
Despite her illness in recent years her support of The Eddie Surman Trust and the the many other charities around the world that she was involved with remained, her commitment was rock sold.
