Mary Millar AKA Lillith

Post by Velda » Thu Apr 15, 2004 9:04 pm

Does anyone know if the Mary Millar who played Lillith is the same one who played Rose in Keeping Up Appearances? I've been watching it on UK Gold and when I saw the name go up in the end credits, it got me wondering.

I don't think she was. If I remember rightly, the one in KM was Mary MILLER, not Mary Millar.

I have just been noted by Billy that, rather sadly Mary Miller, who played Mildread and Lilith in Knightmare, has died.

I do believe she is the only Knightmare actor to have passed thus far, and it is a real shame to hear this.

imdb provides the information, she passed away in 1998:

That's really sad news. The first season of KM might've been quite dull without Lillith to crumble causeways and demean dungeoneers.

awww how sad. i really liked her. :'( just think maybe knightmare wouldn't have been as good without her there to crumble bridges and try and trick dungeoneers into getting into cauldrons.

And yet IMDB knew all along. You have to wonder exactly HOW it found out...

And rest in peace Mary Miller. Lillith and Mildread were two of the best characters in S1-2, and S2 wouldn't be my favourite series without her.

Happy Birthday to Mary Miller

In January 2006 in another thread, Billy wrote:It seems that was a mistake made by the IMDB. That death date is no longer present, and there's an entry for something she did in 2005.
Unless anyone knows otherwise, Mary Miller (Lillith, Mildread) is 81 today. Happy Birthday, Mary, and thank you for entertaining us and helping to give Knightmare such a strong, magical presence in those formative years. To mark the occasion, Aesandre has turned the country into one big ice pack.

I've found an interesting interview with Jacqueline Pearce, the actress who immortalised the character of Servalan in Blake's 7. She states that she was not the first choice to play the part, which was originally offered to... well well, Mary Miller!

http://www.alternativeservalan.com/conv ... interview/

Pearce insists that she and Miller are nothing alike as actresses. There may be some truth in that, there may not, but speaking for myself, Miller's portrayal of Lillith frequently reminded me of Servalan.
