Susan Frances Harmar Nicholls (born
23 November 1943in Walsall, Staffordshire) is an English actress, most known today for her long-running role as Audrey Robertsin " Coronation Street". Her father was Lord Harmar-Nicholls, former Conservative MP for Peterborough (1950-1974) and MEP for Greater Manchester South (1979-1984), and a life peer, and she is thus entitled to be addressed as " The HonourableSusan Nicholls".
Educated at the School of St. Mary and St. Anne (now known as
Abbots Bromley School for Girls), and a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, she first became known as Marilyn Gates in the soap "Crossroads", a role she played from 1964 to 1968. A song she first sang on the programme, " Where Will You Be?", charted on July 3 1968, eventually reaching #17. [UKChartHits|2030]
She was also popular in the role of the secretary, Joan Greengross (later Webster and Millbeck) in the
sitcom" The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin" and its 1996 sequel " The Legacy of Reginald Perrin", as well as gaining popularity with younger TV viewers for her roles as Nadia Popov in " Rentaghost" and Mrs Muddle in " Pipkins" TV series.
However, it is as Audrey in "Coronation Street" since April 1979 that has been her most enduring role, and for a time her husband,
Mark Eden, acted alongside her playing Alan Bradley.
