Thread Name: Obit: Thora Hird - RIP
Subject: RE: Obit: Thora Hird - RIP
I worked with Thora in every episode of "In Loving Memory". She was a true professional as an actress but still had time to get to know the crew who worked with her. I spent many happy hours chatting with her about her family, about her husband "Scotty" and daughter "Our Janet" who was doing well in Hollywood. She asked about my children, Andy and Cathy and always seemed very interested in "how they were getting on". The crew always refered to her as "Aunty Thora"
At the end of one series there was about a year while Thora had her hips replaced before she started another series. We were on location in Luddendun near Halifax when she arrived and the first thing she said was "Hello Bill. How are Andy and Cathy"
She will be sadly missed.
