Actress. A versatile character performer, she is remembered for her long career on the British big and small screens. Born Catherine Annette Kerr Peacock, she was raised in Watford, Hertfordshire from a young age, made her stage bow at the Watford Palace Theatre, trained at London's Central School of Speech and Drama, and 'paid her dues' in numerous regional playhouses prior to her 1959 silver screen debut in the crime drama "The Price of Silence". For the next 35 years Miss Kerr was to be a regular presence on the screen as well as on the London stage, her television credits including a number of early 1960s shows including "Inside Story", "Target Luna", "Emergency-Ward 10", and "No Hiding Place", as well as several episodes of the "ITV Play of the Week". She was seen in a number of feature films, among then the 1964 Miss Jane Marple mystery "Murder Most Foul" and the science fiction thriller "Doppelganger" (1969). Her 1970s appearances included "The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" and "Dial M for Murder"; she was to keep working into the 1990s, being seen on "2point4 Children" and "London's Burning" and earning her final credit on a 1995 episode of "One Foot in the Grave". A friend of and mentor to actor Kenneth Williams, she worked with him in theatre and makes several appearances in his posthumously-published Diaries. Miss Kerr lived out her days in a London home for retired actors and died of the effects of advanced age. (bio by: Bob Hufford)
