JOANNA LUMLEY has achieved status as an international star and national icon based on a number of strikingly memorable characters she created on British television. She is best known for her role in the outrageous sitcom "Absolutely Fabulous,” in which she played Patsy Stone, an eternally-inebriated, domineering and shallow "fashion advisor” defined by her beehive hairdo and eye for younger men. Joanna's performance as Patsy earned her two BAFTA awards and three additional nominations.

The daughter of a British military major, and born in Srinigar, India, Lumley was a model before entering films in 1968 with "Some Girls Do.” In 1976, she first captured the public imagination playing Purdy in the British TV action series "The New Avengers,” followed by the female lead opposite David McCallum in the sci-fi detective series "Saffire And Steele.”

In 1996 she voiced the role of Aunt Spiker in the film "James And The Giant Peach,” and in 1997 presented the travel-documentary "Joanna Lumley In The Kingdom Of The Thunderdragon,” based on her journey through the little-known country of Bhutan, following a route taken by her grandparents during the 1930's. Her other films include "Mad Cows,” "Maybe Baby” and "The Cat's Meow.” She most recently made an appearance in the comedy "Eurotrip.”

Joanna has also written a number of books including Forces Sweethearts, Girl Friday, The Kingdom of the Thunderdragon and her autobiography Stare Back and Smile. She was awarded an OBE in 1995.
