Biography | show moreshow less
Ursula Howells (1922-2005) made her first stage appearance in John Drinkwater's Bird In Hand in Dundee, 1939Daughter of composer Herbert Howells, Howells studied at St. Paul's Girl School where her father was the music director.  From the early 1940's through the early 1950's, Howells travelled Europe as a stage performer, making her London debut in 1945 at the Embassy Theatre.  She took her first trip to America in 1951 to be the star of Springtime for Henry  (1951) which turned out to be her only American Broadway performance.  Nonetheless, she gained special notoriety from her work and soon began receiving film roles.  In high demand for her classic esteem and her luscious English accent, Howells appeared in Young and Willing (1954), The Gilded Cage (1955) and 80,000 Suspects (1963). The 1960's through the 1970's was a period of mainly television appearances for Howells, and she continued the same thread into the 80's and 90's as she began to appear less and less on screen.  Remarkably, however, since the start of her on screen career in 1946, Howells worked consistently until 2001 when she filmed her last show, Midsomer Murders.  She is also commended for founding the Herbert Howells Society in honor of her father.
