Jenny Agutter: English Rose
… These are the lovely ladies and gorgeous girls of eras gone by whose beauty, ability, electricity and all-round x-appeal deserve celebration and – ahem – salivation here at George’s Journal…
Ah, January… a cold, dark and forbidding month, yes? Well, let’s warm things up a tad by adding to the delectable and esteemed collection of Talent the lovely actress Jenny Agutter. Yes, a sex symbol ever since she first appeared on the big screen, she’s the epitome of upper-crust English sexiness; slightly demure, always well-mannered, low and measured of voice and utterly gorgeous (as well as over the years, er, rather liberal in disrobing in her different roles). Why, she’s even described herself as ‘perfect fantasy fodder’ – and there’s simply no arguing with that.
Name: Jennifer Ann Agutter
Born: December 20 1952 in Taunton, Somerset, England
Height: 5ft 7in
Known for: Roles in the films The Railway Children (1970), Walkabout (1971), Logan’s Run (1976), The Eagle Has Landed (1976), Equus (1977), An American Werewolf In London (1981) and Glorious 39 (2009), as well appearing on TV in the 2000 version of The Railway Children and the spy drama Spooks (2002-03).
Strange but true: In spite of her dulcet, oh-so-English tones she moved about in her childhood owing to her father’s – a former British army officer – job as an entertainment organiser; indeed, for a time she lived in both Dhekelia, Cyprus, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Peak of fitness: Opinions will vary greatly here, of course, but for me it has to be as über-sexy and yet wonderfully down-to-earth nurse Alex Price in An American Werewolf In London – she’d make a lovely bandage for any patient.
