Wendy Padbury's Main TV Roles
Main Movie Roles
Guest TV Roles[none found]
Wendy Padbury trained at the Aida Foster Stage School and made her TV debut on the BBC arts programme "Monitor" soon after starting the course. More TV work followed, and by the age of seventeen she had landed a regular role in the ATV soap opera "Crossroads." Soon after this, she applied for the role of Zoe in "Doctor Who." After several rounds of auditions and a screen test at Lime Grove, she was given the job. Although the production team tried to persuade her to stay on at the end of season six, and she was tempted to do so, she decided to leave at the same time as her co-stars Patrick Troughton and Frazer Hines. She then worked in the theatre and in the early seventies appeared in three seasons of the Southern TV children's series "Freewheelers." Since the mid-seventies, she has divided her time between raising a family and continuing her acting career.
- Now a theatrical agent, she has fellow former _"Doctor Who" (1963)_ (qv) actors 'Nicholas Courtney' (qv) and 'Colin Baker (I)' (qv) on her books.
