Sian Phillips lived in Garnant, near Ammanford.
Links with Pontardawe (in school with my mum).
Did she also star in 'Dune' or was that another Sian Phillips? (you're right, she did - Ed).
I think she played Marlene Dietrich in a play about her life. Toured over the country with it.
Sian phillips is from Cwmgors, near Pontardawe.
Probably our countries greatest female representative in the performing arts living or dead reduced to a few off the cuff remarks. Never mind brush up your Shakespeare!
I worked with Sian in one of the BBC productions between 1965 to 1969, but more interestingly she worked with my sister Francesca Annis on Dune in Mexico, with sting et al.
