An interview with Daphne Neville

Bakers Mill page 1

Daphne was interviewed recently about her home in the Cotswolds, which has often been used as a film location. After a number of television advertisements and drama serials such as Dark Secret and House of Elliot used the house, Daphne appeared in Cold Caller, an award-winning short film that made good use of the lake. You can read more about it here.

Rudi-the-Otter who lives in an enclosure above the converted mill, appeared in the movie Scottish Mussel. He played both himself and his mate in series two of The Durrells and featured in BBCTV’s Natural World Series where he was used to show how otters can smell underwater in the documentary entitled ‘Super-charged Otters’. You can see more photos of filming with the tame otters here.

Granny

In the first episode, Daphne and two friends are taken to Amsterdam in ‘this lively three-part series’ presented by Barry Humphries‘They were sampling cannabis in Amsterdam. Flames leaped up in their faces but only made them dissolve in giggles. It was shot in the Red Light District and is actually illegal but they enjoyed their trip (overseas).’

There is more in the Guardian, ‘They’re not here for the tulips’.

In Episode 2, Daphne and her two friends went off to try out virtual gaming and had fun ‘killing’ each other. She went to the hairdressers in Episode 3 , only to ask her stylist if she would make her look nice after she’d died – when she was in the coffin.

She threatens to climb out of a coffin next. OAPs on the rampage. There is surely to be another series. It is wonderful to see how gorgeous the senior citizens looked in their youth. Click here for photos of Daphne.

The clips have gone viral. ‘You’ve become an internet sensation, Granny.’

On the set of Ab Fab: The Movie

‘You won’t see me, I was playing a wall-flower,’ but rest assured Daphne was there, in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

‘I’m in a scene with June Whitfield when everyone is dancing.’ This is clearly described by Jennifer Saunders as, ‘some kind of late-night lesbo party’ and Daphne’s sitting to left of screen with a fancy glass of champagne in her hand!

‘It’s meant to be the South of France but was shot in a hotel in London.’

They did have fun.
