Lilian Harry grew up in Portsmouth and now lives in a village on the edge of Dartmoor with two ginger cats. She has a son, a daughter and two grandchildren, and is a keen walker. Honeysuckle Weeks comes from West Sussex and is so named because the scent of honeysuckle was very strong at the time she was born (August 1979). She first came to public attention as the juvenile lead in the 1993 TV adaptation of Anne Fine's Goggle Eyes. More recent roles have included appearances in The Ruth Rendell Mysteries, Casualty, Lorna Doone and Midsomer Murders. She is now best known as the co-star of the BAFTA-award winning Foyle's War, ITV1's immensely popular wartime drama. As driver Samantha Stewart, she provides (to quote one critic) an apple-cheeked and bushy-tailed contrast to Michael Kitchen's middle aged, introspective detective. Her stage work includes Love's Labours Lost at the Chichester Festival Theatre.
