So That's Where I Get It From

March 22 – Women’s History Month – Fearless Females

March 22 – If a famous director wanted to make a movie about one of your female ancestors who would it be? What actress would you cast in the role and why?

To answer this topic I will say that if a film could be made about any of my female ancestors, then I would suggest my dear late Aunt Margaret (1916 – 1999) who I featured in the March 21 post of this series.

She was a career women and continued working until she was 80 years old.  Only a heart attack stopped her!!  She survived that but felt it was then time to retire.

All through my younger years I remember my Aunt was always travelling about in the world for her business but also for holidays where she would go mountain climbing, ski-ing, hiking and so on.  To me Aunt Margaret was a bit of an adventuress, so if a film was made about her, it would have to be action-packed!

The actress I would choose to play my Aunt Margaret would be Annette Crosbie.   She is more known these days as being the long-suffering wife of Victor Meldrew in One Foot In The Grave. 

The reason I would choose Annette is because whenever I have seen her over the years, she has always reminded me of my Aunt Margaret. 

Here is a pic of the actress Annette Crosbie taken from the internet from an article at:

I think this actress and my Aunt Margaret look very similar and so I think Annette would be perfectly cast.
