Canadian comedy actress and singer, born in Winnipeg, Canada, who came to England in June 1955 with husband disc jockey Murray Kash. According to a 1960s interview, they saved up for a holiday trip to London but liked it here so much they decided to stay!
"At first things were tough," she recalls, "London was already full of Canadian actors looking for work - and Murray and I were last in the queue."
Libby's luck changed when Jack Jackson chose her to mime to songs on Off The Record, becoming an immediate hit. She was given her own short one-off Meet Libby Morris in April 1956, and went on to appear in another one-off special vehicle for Bernard Bresslaw entitled Bresslaw And Friends, co-written by Dick Vosburgh, and appearing alongside alongside future Space Patrol voice artist Ronnie Stevens.
A well known personality of the 1960s, she was often a guest on various variety shows, and was a regular on Don't Say A Word, an early charades based game show in the tradition of the more recent Give Us A Clue.
