The great actress has just been made a Dame, aged 87.
Last year, she was one of our Oldies of the Year.

In her 60-year career, Sheila Hancock has conquered the stage and the small screen. She is honoured by the Oldie Academy, though, for her stellar work on the big silver screen.

Today, aged 87, she is still dominating the top line of movie posters, most recently in Edie.
