Wendy Alison van der Plank (born 7 August 1963 in Caerleon, Monmouthshire) is a British actress best known for playing Wizadora in the ITV series of the same name.[1][2]

Her first television appearance was in the BBC comedy series Spin Off. After appearing in one episode of Casualty, she played the role of Hilly in the ITV drama Forever Green before being cast as Wizadora.

In addition she appeared as Sharon in the radio sitcom All That Jazz,[3] in which the creator commented that he was "...knocked out by Wendy van der Plank", and that "She'd never done any radio before and was largely unknown, but she came close to stealing the show. She really threw herself into it and I thought she was hilarious... She was just great!".[4][5]

She has also appeared in various theatrical shows, including The King and I in 1987,[6] and Quasimodo the Hunchback of Notre Dame in 1988,[7] both at the Queen's Theatre in Hornchurch.

She now works for the Boiling Kettle theatre company in Devon, where she lives.[citation needed]
