Actress, Additional Crew


Penny Downie was born in Australia. She was determined to make it overseas and her role in Minder (1979), with George Cole and Dennis Waterman, was her big break. She's never looked back, and is regularly seen in TV work. She was known to have a good ear and able to pick up accents, quickly. Her English accent is flawless today.
