Ac­tress Anna’s love of elm and yew trees

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

Ac­tress Anna Calder-Mar­shall has a unique way of remembering her lines.

She marks a script with draw­ings, which blos­som into small pieces of art.

Ex­am­ples of this were shown at a solo ex­hi­bi­tion she held in Kingsnorth over the week­end along with her many paint­ings of elm and yew trees.

Scripts that showed her draw­ing tal­ents in­cluded A Kind Of Alaska, by Harold Pin­ter, which she per­formed on stage about eight years ago, and The Herd, by Rory Kin­n­ear, son of the late ac­tor Roy Kin­n­ear.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was held on Satur­day and Sun­day at the Stubbs Cross Mis­sion Hall in Mag­pie Hall Road. More than 50 peo­ple at­tended on the first day.

Miss Calder-Mar­shall , who lives in Bethers­den, is best known as an ac­tress on stage, screen and ra­dio, but is also a keen pain­ter and sculp­tor and mem­ber of the Ten­ter­den Mak­ers Arts Group.

She has ap­peared in sev­eral films, such as Zulu Dawn in 1979 and Anna Karen­ina in 1997, and will be ap­pear­ing in Evening At The Talk House at the Na­tional Theatre in Lon­don from Novem­ber to next April. Ex­hi­bi­tion of paint­ings of elm and yew trees
