Anne has given many interviews over the years. Some are included
here whilst others can be found in conjunction with the main
subject matter of the interview, for example,

During the 1973
Glasstown tour, Anne was
interviewed by some of the local papers. Of particular interest
to Onedin fans is one which was published in the South Wales
Evening Post on 11 May.
Also appearing in
the play was Robert Powell, whom Anne had previously worked with
in a radio series broadcast in 1968. He was well-known from his
role as Toby Wren in Doomwatch and when this character died, the
BBC received a record number of letters from viewers. This
record was beaten a few years later by those sent in response to
Anne Onedin’s death. A handful of the letters were published in
the Radio Times.

A Profile Of Anne
Theatre programmes have proved a valuable source of
information about the productions Anne/Peter have appeared in
over the years. Most contain a brief career synopsis and some a
photo as well. Occasionally there’s an added bonus - as in the
case of this profile taken from the Alphabetical Order programme
from 1980 for the Theatre Royal, Windsor. The lovely picture is
from the same item.

The Captain's Lady
One of the best interviews we have was published in the UK Woman's Weekly
magazine in 1989, titled
Meet Anne Stallybrass, the Captain’s Lady.
The article contains much interesting information
and gives some insight into the real Anne. Fame clearly has not
"spoilt" her; she comes over as a very likeable and
down-to-earth woman. There is also the bonus of some
lovely photos of the actress taken at home, including a rare
photo of Anne and Peter together.
Diana would like to thank Deanna Susans who very kindly
copied this (and other material) for her and without whom we
might never found the interview.
reading the interview itself, the following was included in the previous week's issue:
A woman of surprises
Actress Anne Stallybrass seems to have specialised in playing
long-suffering historical heroines. Off camera, she's happy,
humorous and nobody's fool, as our fascinating interview
