A Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for the actress Googie Withers. sign now

We the undersigned request that the film, television and theatre actress Googie Withers is made a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Googie Withers was born on 12th March 1917 and has a career which spans eight decades. She has starred in numerous films, television programmes and stage plays over the years. During the 1930s she was constantly in demand in lead roles in minor films and supporting roles in more prestigious productions. Her best known work of the period was as one of Margaret Lockwood's friends in Alfred Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (1938). Among her successes of the 1940s was One of our Aircraft is Missing (1942), a topical World War II drama in which she played a resistance fighter who helps British airmen return to safety from behind enemy lines. She shot to television fame in the 1970's playing Governess Faye Boswell in the ITV classic drama series Within These Walls. Faye ran Stonepark prison with a rod of iron and Googie played the part tremendously. Googie's most recent screen performance was as the music teacher in the 1996 film Shine for which she and the other cast members were nominated for a Screen Actors Guild for "Outstanding Performance By A Cast".

Googie has already received a CBE in 2002 for her services to acting, but we feel it is time to make her a Dame. As she is approaching the age of 90, it would be nice for Googie to be made a Dame whilst she is still alive. She won't be around forever you know.
