Stephanie Turner (born 25 May 1944 in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England) is an actress.

She is best known for the lead role of Inspector Jean Darblay in the first three series of the 1980s television BBC police drama Juliet Bravo (1980-82). Prior to this, she had played Dennis Waterman's screen wife, Alison Carter, in early episodes of The Sweeney (1975) and WPC Howarth in Z-Cars (1972–75), which stood her in good stead for her role as Inspector Darblay. She also made an appearance in Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads and played a recurring role as Jessie Naylor née Maugham in Series 2 of Sam (1974).[1] In the 1990s, Stephanie was in each episode of The Hello Girls as Miss Armitage, a supervisor of a 1950s GPO switchboard; and played Mrs Hope Q.C in two episodes of At Home with the Braithwaites.[2] Having worked in various roles between the 1960s-2000s - on stage, radio, television, and as a director - Stephanie retired from acting in 2010. In more recent years, she has helped direct drama students, had a share in an antiques business, and volunteered with InterAct Stroke Support (formerly InterAct Reading Service)- a charity that allows actors to read to patients following a stroke.[3][4][5]
