Brenda Castle

Brenda was one of the earliest members of the society, joining when the society had only just got off the ground. The picture shown was from “Book of the Month”.

The review below is from a local newspaper and tells of Brenda’s wonderful acting skills in “Curious Savage” (1962).

“… and Brenda Castle gave just the right impression of the multiple divorcee stepdaughter, Lily Belle, who believes that diamonds, princes, or just plain million-dollar bonds, are a girl’s best friend…”

From 1967 the local review of ‘Time of Your Life’ said:

“… Brenda Castle dealt professionally with the character of `Grandma’.”

Brenda sadly passed away in June 2005 – a sad loss of a good friend to the Company.
