Fenella Fielding, OBE, born Fenella Marion Feldman, (17 November 1927 — 11 September 2018), was a British actress best known for her seductive image and husky voice. Her fans affectionately referred to her as England's First Lady of the Double Entendre.

She began acting on stage in 1952 and became a star in 1958 after appearing in Valmouth. She frequently had guest appearances on television throughout The '60s.

It was also during this time that she appeared in three of the Doctor films, The Old Dark House (1963), and two of the Carry On films with a leading role in Carry On Screaming! as the gothic Valeria Watt. In 1966, she starred in Izeena as the titular character.

Later in her career, she played the Vixen in all four series of Uncle Jack and Mrs. Foxfur in Guest House Paradiso.

In 2018, she was awarded an OBE for her services to drama and charity. She died that same year at the age of 90 after a stroke.
