"I only have warm memories of my Carry On days. Happy times."

Angela Douglas, born Angela McDonagh, (29 October 1940), is a British actress best known for playing pretty young love interests in the Carry On... Series in the mid-'60s.

She started acting as a teenager and made her West End debut in 1958. The next year she appeared in a film for the first time, an Uncredited Role in Six-Five Special, followed shortly by her first credited role in The Shakedown the same year.

Douglas made her first appearance in the Carry On Series as Annie Oakley in 1965's Carry On Cowboy and would go on to play three more roles in the series, finishing with 1968's Carry On Up the Khyber. The role of June in Carry On Up the Jungle was intended for her, but she decided to take a break from the series at that point so Jacki Piper took on the role and followed in her footsteps playing the young and pretty romantic leads.

When her husband, Kenneth More, discovered he had Parkinson's disease, she took a break from acting until his death. She then took several small roles on television.

Douglas was married to director Bill Bryden from 2009 until his death in 2022.
