Welcome to the Official Dinah Sheridan website.
We were deeply saddened to hear that Dinah passed
away peacefully on the morning of Sunday 25th
November at her home in Northwood surrounded
by her family including her daughter Jenny Hanley
and Sir Jimmy Hanley.
Dinah Sheridan’s career has spanned six decades
and encompasses modelling (her parents were the
Royal Photographers) along with stage, cinema and
television acting roles: with Genevieve, The Railway Children, Dr Who, and Don’t Wait Up being the
most fondly remembered and highly regarded.
Dinah knew from an early age that she was
destined for a career in showbusiness. Her
chance came with the opportunity to train at
the famous Italia Conti school and to this day
she proudly retains the payslip from her first
stage appearance at age twelve in “Where
The Rainbow Ends” at the Holborn Empire,
London for 30 shillings.
In more recent years Dinah was a popular
returning guest on shows such as Countdown
and Crosswits, challenging her grey matter in
words and conundrums.
