Sunday Wilshin

Sunday Wilshin (1905–1991) was a British actress and radio producer; the successor to George Orwell on his resignation in 1943.[1] She was born in London as Mary Aline Wilshin[2] (corroborated by publicly-available birth records; other sources give Sunday/ Sundae Mary Aline Horne (-) Wilshin)[3] and educated at the Italia Conti Stage School.[4] Wilshin was a member of the 'Bright young things' of the 1920s, and a close friend of the actress Cyllene Moxon and of author (and former actress) Noel Streatfeild.[5] In connection with the 'bright young things', Wilshin commonly appears in accounts of a gathering whereat she was assaulted by the silent film actress Brenda Dean Paul.[6]
