Before the Year Dot (Hardback)June Brown (author)
- Not available
Of course, it was Johnny's death. But, in fact, my life was changed twice by death.
June Brown is an institution - a classically trained actress and showbiz veteran, who has undoubtedly lived a full and fascinating life.
One of the few national treasures left not to have told her story, she is much-loved for her role as the chain-smoking Dot Branning in the long-running BBC soap, EastEnders, a character she has played with dedication and skill for over 25 years.
Before the Year Dot traces her colourful childhood in Ipswich with her beloved sisters, through the war with the WRENS, to her days as a gifted stage actress trained by the likes of Laurence Olivier, Michel Saint-Denis and Glen Byam-Shaw. Her legendary tours of the Young and Old Vic Schools saw her play some of her most memorable parts and cement her acting credentials.
In this hugely anticipated memoir, June recounts an enthralling early life. But it is also a life marked by two deaths that changed June forever - once when she lost her beloved sister, Marise, and a second time with the loss of her adored husband, Johnny.
June Brown tells her colourful story with candour and skill, and in her own words.
