35 Fabulous Photos of Carol White in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1943 in Hammersmith, London, English actress Carol White played minor roles in films from 1949 until the late 1950s, when she began to play more substantial supporting roles in films such as Carry on Teacher (1959) and Never Let Go (1960). She drew attention for her performances in the television version of Nell Dunn’s Up the Junction (1965). She followed this success with roles in Cathy Come Home (1966) and the films Poor Cow (1967), based on another Nell Dunn book, and I’ll Never Forget What’s’isname (1967).

White starred opposite Alan Bates, Dirk Bogarde and Ian Holm in the film adaptation of Bernard Malamud’s The Fixer (1968) and then travelled to Hollywood in 1968 to make Daddy’s Gone A-Hunting (1969).

During the late 1960s, White was considered one of the most promising actresses in British cinema, but her alcoholism and drug abuse damaged her career, and from the early 1970s she worked infrequently.

White died in 1991 in Florida, at the age of 48. A television film of her life, The Battersea Bardot, was shown in 1994, with White portrayed by Wendy Morgan. Take a look at these fabulous photos to see portraits of young Carol White in the 1960s and 1970s.
