After having bit parts in The Lightning Conductor (1938) and Charley's (Big-Hearted) Aunt (1940), Evans entered the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art for training. Her work in Penny and the Pownall Case (1948) was praised in Monthly Film Review: "Peggy Evans ... is a sparkling heroine, who not only looks extremely attractive but acts with naturalness and charm as well."
Evans was married twice: to actor Michael Howard from 1949 to 1956; the union produced two children but ended in divorce. She married, secondly, to Peter Stevens in 1990; the couple remained together until his death.[when?] In later years, she learned Portuguese and lived in the Algarve for part of each year.
