Meet Honor Blackman

Honor Blackman was born on Aug. 22, 1925, in London, the third of four children of Frederick Blackman, a civil-service statistician, and the former Edith Eliza Stokes. Her father was a crucial influence on her decision to pursue an acting career, she recalled. When she was a teenager, he gave her a choice of a bicycle or elocution lessons (he felt his own East London accent had held him back in life); she chose the lessons. She later attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and began performing onstage.


Honor grew up in West London and left home at the age of 18 after her father hit her for wearing lipstick. She had a difficult relationship with her father, who the actress described as tyrannical. In an interview with Evening Standard back in 2004, she revealed: “My parents had Victorian values, and so the man was always right. It took me ages to work out men don’t always make the right decisions.

“I mean, instinct told me early on it wasn’t the case, but it took me a long time to argue back.” Honor moved into a bedsit and landed an acting job as an understudy at the West End’s Criterion theatre.

At the tender age of 20, she married businessman Bill Sankey in 1948, but unfortunately his possessive ways reminded her of her Father. When Bill suggested he wanted to emigrate to Canada, she realised she would be happier without him, and the marriage ended in divorce in 1956.

Her first credited screen role was in “Daughter of Darkness” (1948), a British crime film with horror elements; that came after she died in a horseback riding accident in an uncredited part in “Fame Is the Spur,” a 1947 movie starring Michael Redgrave.

“I couldn’t be happier with the two children we finished up with. Lottie, 46, a psychotherapist, and Barnaby, 45, who’s about to do a teaching course. They’ve both traced their biological parents. I gave them the wherewithal to do that because I really don’t understand adopted children who aren’t the least bit interested in their parentage.

They’re totally different characters. My daughter is serious and decisive and hard working. My son has done various things such as running a bar. Actually he would be divinely happy if he could just go to the ski slopes and stay there and take his family with him. They are both wonderful parents.”
