Biography

Susan Pollard (born November 7, 1949 in Nottingham) is a flamboyant English comedy actress known as Su Pollard best known for her roles in the sitcoms Hi-de-Hi! and You Rang, M’Lord?.

After performing in several West End musicals and coming second in a heat of Opportunity Knocks, she was noticed by BBC producers and chosen to star in a new sitcom Two Up, Two Down with Paul Nicholas.

The sitcom was not a success, but it led to her being cast as Peggy Ollerenshaw in Hi-De-Hi!. The show was a hit and Pollard became familiar face to families across the UK.

In 1988, David Croft and Jimmy Perry, the writers of Hi De Hi!, chose Pollard to star in their new sitcom You Rang, M’Lord?. The show was a moderate success. In the 1990s Su starred in another Croft sitcom, Oh, Doctor Beeching!. The show was cancelled by the BBC after only 19 episodes. Critics joked that it had received a “Beeching Axe”.

Also in 1988, Su won the much-coveted “Rear of the Year” award. Other winners have included Felicity Kendal and Anneka Rice.

Pollard also voiced characters in two animated children’s television series produced for the BBC: the title character of Penny Crayon and Noisy in Little Robots.

In recent years she has been in several stage plays and musicals including Annie and The Pirates of Penzance.
