Elaine Regina Taylor Plummer AKA is an Elaine Taylor former actress from England, best known as a leading lady in the late 1960s and early 1970s comedy films. She was born on 17 October 1943 in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England.
She is the widow of Christopher Plummer, an actor from Canada.
She is 77 years old. Her husband Christopher Plummer was 91 years old.
Taylor appeared in episodes of different British television shows in the mid-1960s, including The Benny Hill Show (1965), The Lance Percival Show (1966), in which she sang and took part in comedy sketches, The Old Campaigner (1967), which starred Terry-Thomas as a womanizing seller of plastics, and Mr. Rose, featuring William Mervyn as a retired senior policeman (1968).
Her performance on 18 December 1965 with Benny Hill included a gender-reversal parody of the Baby Doll film of 1956 that Hill replicated with Diana Darvey in 1974. It is often assumed that Taylor was the announcer of a sketch in which Hill first performed his song “Those Days” to mimic Sonny and Cher.
In the third series of his BBC radio show, Benny Hill Time, which began on the Light Program on 27 February 1966, she collaborated with Hill again and starred, among others, Patricia Hayes and Peter Vernon.
In The George McKenna Story (1986) and Sharing Richard (1988), she returned to television in America in the mid-1980s and co-produced the 1987 Love Potion film. In the TV film Till Death Us Do Part, Taylor’s most recent appearance is thought to have been (1992).
For several years prior to his death, Christopher Plummer was married to Elaine Taylor. When filming Lock Up Your Daughters in 1969, Plummer and Taylor met.
It was said that, for the film, Taylor had to color her hair red, and that Plummer was fond of women with red hair.
Plummer wrote in his 2008 memoir titled In Spite of Myself: “Elaine had now completed her role in the movie and was on her way back to London for yet another engagement — a busy and popular lady. I felt absolutely empty and as despondent as anyone could be.
“As she was leaving, I told her I was going to miss her dreadfully and hoped she would let me see her in London. ‘All right, but on one condition,’ she warned, ‘That you cut down on the booze.’
The couple has no children together.
