Actress Anna’s love of elm and yew trees
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
