West Herts and Watford Observer, July 2, 1965.
“Jane Asher, the prominent young actress who is to play the part of Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion at Watford’s Palace Theatre next week [July 1965], chooses an evening gown at Clements. With her in the picture is Thelma Holland, of Clements’ showroom staff.
“Flame-haired Jane, 19, is the middle child of three – her elder brother Peter is the first half of the Peter and Gordon pop group. Her father is a consultant physician, broadcaster and writer; her mother teaches the oboe at the Royal Academy.
“Jane’s showbusiness career started at five years of age when she played the part of the deaf mute Nina in the film Mandy.
“Since then she had played in a dozen motion pictures, including The Greengage Summer and The Prince and the Pauper.
“On television she has been Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Lise in The Bothers Karamazov and Maggie Tulliver in The Mill On the Floss.
“On the lighter side, she has made appearances on Juke Box Jury, First Impressions and The Celebrity Stage.
“On the West End stage she was the youngest Wendy in the history of Peter Pan and also played in Will You Walk A Little Faster at the Duke of York’s and Race Against Time at the Lyric.”
