Actress. She received her formal education at Howell's School in Denbigh and by the age of seventeen, she came to the realization of pursuing an acting career, for which she trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. During the early 1950s, she launched what was to become an extensive and successful stage career, as a skilled practitioner of Shakespeare with several prestigious repertory companies, performing in the plays "The Taming of the Shrew" and "Much Ado About Nothing", to name a few. Her 1962 performance in the production of "On a Clear Day You Can See Canterbury" at the Theatre Royal in Stratford East drew rave reviews from critics. Allen, (who launched her TV career during the mid-1950s) will be known to fans of the popular cult series "The Prisoner" for her highly-memorable role of number 14 in the episode "A.B. and C." (1967). She would go on to have countless television credits, notably featured roles in the TV-mini series "Another Bouquet" (1977), "Shroud for a Nightingale" (1984) and a recurring part in the program "Crown Court" (1975 to 1982). She marked her motion picture debut in the horror film "Children of the Damned" (1964) and followed this with credits in "The Alphabet Murders" (1965) and "Three Into Two Won't Go" (1969). When not acting, Allen was an educator at the Lee Strasberg Institute (New York) and the Guildford School of Acting (England). She was formerly married to TV and stage director David Jones. (bio by: C.S.)
