Rosalind Knight passes away aged 87

It is Cult Faction’s sad duty to report that Rosalind Knight has passed away at the age of 87 years old. The news was broken by her family: “It is with huge sadness that the family of Rosalind Knight announce her death following a glorious career as a well-loved actress in theatre, TV and film. She was known to so many generations, for so many different roles, and will be missed as much by the kids today who howl at Horrible Grandma in Friday Night Dinner as by those of us who are old enough to remember her in the very first Carry On films.”

Her daughters, theatre director Marianne Elliott and actress Susannah Elliott, said she would be remembered for her “immense spirit and sense of fun, and her utter individuality.” They said: “Our mother had the most astute, vibrant personality and made people laugh wherever she went. She was a great reader, art lover and raconteur. She contributed in a voluntary way to the theatrical world through her involvement in the building of the Royal Exchange Theatre, alongside her husband Michael Elliott, and her support for the Actors Centre and the Ladies’ Theatrical Guild. She was an active member of her local history society and opera society, and was a fierce campaigner and fundraiser for the Hogarth Trust. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.”

Through her career she appeared in Blue Murder at St. Trinian’s, Emergency-Ward 10, Carry On Nurse, Carry On Teacher, The Pure Hell of St. Trinian’s, Martin Chuzzlewit, Jackanory, The Beverly Hillbillies, Dixon of Dock Green, Coronation Street, Up the Elephant and Round the Castle, The Return of the Antelope, Only Fools and Horses, Watching, The Upper Hand, Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Hunderby, The Crown, and Friday Night Dinner.
