Fenella Fielding has died.
The 'Carry On' actress passed away on Tuesday (11.09.18) aged 90 after suffering a stroke a two weeks ago, her spokesperson has confirmed.
They said in a statement: ''We are very sad to announce that Fenella Fielding OBE passed away this afternoon on Tuesday 11 September.
''This follows a severe stroke two weeks ago. During that time, she has been very comfortable and always looked tranquil and divine. And always wearing her eyelashes.
''Miss Fielding was an incredible talent. That voice! A unique woman, much loved by family, friends and fans. She will be missed tremendously.''
Fenella - who began her career in 1952 - most famously starred in 1961's 'Carry On Regardless' and 'Carry On Screaming!' five years later, and her autobiography, 'Do You Mind If I Smoke?' was named after a line from the latter.
She also had TV roles in 'The Avengers', 'The Prisoner' and 'The Morecambe and Wise Show' but later admitted she struggled to land high-profile roles and felt typecast by the 'Carry On' movies.
Speaking in 2008, she said: ''You get set on a path and, if you succeed, you get better parts, but of the same kind. If you don't take a lot of trouble, you get stuck like that.
''I've managed to get away from that, time and time again, but people still think of me in a certain way because of the 'Carry On' films.''
Fenella - who was awarded an OBE in the 2018 Queen's birthday honours - is survived by her older brother, former Conservative member of the House of Lords Basil Feldman.
