Happy birthday, Miss Marple!
Marvelous British actress Joan Hickson would have been 110 years old today, but unfortunately she passed away in 1998. She won the hearts of many Agatha Christie fans as her portrayal as the elderly spinster sleuth, Miss Jane Marple of St, Mary Mead.
Dame Christie saw Joan in a production of Appointment With Death and wrote her a letter saying she hoped one day Joan would play Miss Marple. She won a Royal Television Society award in 1987 for Best Performance - Female for her protrayal of Miss Marple.
I just watched her in Body In The Library last night!
