It's Not A Rehearsal - The Autobiography

Amanda Barrie

It's Not A Rehearsal The Autobiography Amanda BarrieAmanda Barrie has been on the stage since she was three, when she performed at the theatre her grandfather ran.

She ran away to Soho at the age of 13 where she became a chorus girl before making her West End lead debut in "Public Mischief" with George Cole.

Throughout the 60s and 70s Amanda worked in theatre, television and film - including her famous role as Cleopatra in "Carry on Cleo" - before making her first appearance as Alma Sedgwick in Coronation Street in 1981.

In this honest account, Amanda not only recalls countless anecdotes from her professional life, she also reflects, with chraracteristic humour, on her personal life, including her affair with Billy Fury and unconventional marriage to actor Robin Hunter.
