I just noticed information from previous versions--deleted by accident?

  • does Margolyes hold an OBE?
  • did she do voice over work on Mulan?

According to IMDB, she does hold an OBE and she work on Mulan (as the voice of "Matchmaker")

Blackadder role[edit]

In Blackadder (the second series) she didn't play a Spanish Infanta, but Blackadder's puritan aunt Lady Whiteadder. They went to see Blackadder in order to talk of his inheritance. They would only eat turnip and drink water. In one quote when offered a chair she declared, "You have chairs? Wicked child, chairs are an invention of Satan. In our house Nathanial (her husband) sits on a spike. I sit on Nathanial: two spikes would be an Extravagance."

More on Blackadder she did indeed play Lady Whiteadder in Blackadder II but also played the Spanish Infanta in Blackadder I —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:00, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Removal of 'Sexy Sonia: Leaves from My School Girl Notebook '[edit]

The following was included in her Filmography:

Sexy Sonia: Leaves from My School Girl Notebook (197x) - Sexy Sonia, voice characterisation

This could very well be genuine but I can't find a refrence to this film in Google and it's not on Wikipedia. We also don't know the year? I've removed it but if someone could provide a source then it will be reincluded. C.harrison1988 (talk) 12:44, 15 May 2008 (UTC) Interview with Richard Glover, ABC Radio, Sydney, Australia, February 6, 2012, confirmed this role.

If anyone's keen to look it up, she talked about it on Andrew Denton's More than Enough Rope on Monday 2 June 2008 in Australia on ABC1, which itself was compiled from an interview in an earlier show. (talk) 12:12, 2 June 2008 (UTC)Dave

She also discussed it on Desert Island Discs this morning, but called it "..Diary" not "..Notebook", so I have added it back.Sah10406 (talk) 10:42, 28 September 2008 (UTC)


I've rated this article as a C class for the LGBT project, nearly at B. Seems to cover the important points, and it well organised. Needs to fill in some of the gaps in citations. The discussion of her work seems to be a little random (or recentism?) - are they her "best" roles? "most aclaimed" "most famous"? Some quotes or cites from critics might clear it up. Is the OBE true? I couldn't see it in the article (was for services to arts? charity?. does she have an interaction with the gay community (publications, charities, views, fans?)Yobmod (talk) 08:27, 30 July 2008 (UTC)


In all the interviews I've heard, she describes herself as an actor rather than an actress: unless there's a WP convention precluding it, I propose the article be altered to reflect this Dom Kaos (talk) 21:22, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

No objections, so I'm going to be bold ~dom Kaos~ (talk) 14:35, 9 July 2009 (UTC)


These are all mixed together in the Filmography section. I can split them into separate section if no-one objects.  Tigerboy1966  19:07, 8 December 2015 (UTC)

Cadbury’s Caramel Rabbit[edit]

The article vaguely says in the middle of credits for the 1990’s that “around this time” she voiced the Caramel Rabbit; she may have done, but that misses the fact that she’s played the role since the Eighties (according to the Wikipedia article on the chocolate bar),and a YouTube search found an advert with her voice from 1980. The citation article given doesn’t refer to the rabbit at all… Jock123 (talk) 15:40, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
