Madoline Thomas (born Madoline Mary Price; 2 January 1890 – 30 December 1989) was a Welsh character actress whose career, beginning in midlife, encompassed stage, film and television roles.

Early life

Madoline Mary Price was born in Abergavenny in Monmouthshire. Her father E. J. Price[1] was a draper.[2] She was musical, a singer and pianist, and held an ATCL diploma from Trinity Guildhall as a piano teacher.[3][4] She sang in church[5] and participated in concerts and theatrical productions as a young woman.[6][7][8] "Miss Madoline Price possesses an exceptionally fine voice," noted one report from Abergavenny in 1909, adding "We wish Miss Price every success in her musical career".[3]


Thomas' stage credits beginning in the 1940s[9][10] included a number of roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company during the 1960s in productions directed by Peter Hall, including The Comedy of Errors, Richard II,[11] Richard III,[12] Henry V and Henry VI, Part 2, supporting David Warner, Roy Dotrice, Ian Holm, and Peggy Ashcroft, among others.[13] In 1977, she played a zither[6] as a "venomous elder" in Tales from the Vienna Woods at the Royal National Theatre.[14] In 1982, at age 92, she was Marina in Peter Hall's production of Uncle Vanya.[15] That year, the Guardian profiled Thomas under the headline "A National Legend."[16]

Thomas appeared in supporting parts in more than a dozen films between 1945 and 1972.[17] Her television credits from the late 1940s into the 1980s included parts in shows such as Dixon of Dock Green, Coronation Street, Angels, "Shoestring " and When the Boat Comes In.[18]

Personal life

Madoline Mary Price married John W. H. "Jack" Thomas in 1917;[1] they had a son. She became a professional actress after her husband died.[6][15] She broke her hip and died soon after, in Weston-super-Mare, on 30 December 1989, three days before her 100th birthday.[19]
