Beautiful Joanna Lumley



I have no idea why the beautiful Joanna Lumley is subject to a post, but she popped in my head for some reason. Like Pasty it may have been a drunken haze. Most of us know her and her image above from Absolutely Fabulous.But did you know the tall, cool, blonde, JOANNA LUMLEY cut her chops before the camera as both a model and a Bond girl in 1969, she had two lines as “The English Girl” in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service — but it’s her hilarious turn as the boozy, self-absorbed Patsy Stone on television’s Absolutely Fabulous with which she will always be joyfully associated. Blessed with a gift for physical comedy on par with Lucille Ball’s, Lumley’s Patsy clambers over airport luggage conveyor belts and slides down stairwells, dressed to the 9th degree in short-skirted 1990s power slut fashion and a towering up-do that recalls late-period Ivana Trump. But this actress is also a classically trained actress and appears in many productions of the English stage. But no denying she is stunning and very beautiful. Here's more of her beauty........

  3. I remember her from the old Brit series "The New Avengers." That was probably around the same time as she was a Bond girl. It was a million years ago now! Both she and I were much younger then.

    I chatted once with some lovely older British ladies in Croatia on the beach. They went to a concert, Joanna's husband was conductor but she didn't want any publicity for her cause it was the evening for her husband. She stayed out of camera's. I think she's a real lovely lady, total opposite of Patsy but i love Patsy too!!!
