R.I.P. Wendy Richards

This really makes me sad. As a UK born- American bred girl, I’m a bit of an anglophile. As such, I love this old 1960s show “Are You Being Served?” on PBS- it’s obviously reruns and follows several department store workers through their randoms comical days. Wendy Richards played Miss Brahms and always came through with a funny joke. She went on to gain more attention on the UK soap “EastEnders” playing Pauline Fowler for the last 20 years. And now, Mrs. Richards has past after succumbing to cancer.

According to her agent Kevin Francis, “She was incredibly brave and retained her sense of humour right to the end.”

A girl after our own hearts. She’ll definitely be missed. Clip of “Are You Being Served?” after the jump- enjoy!
