Personal life

Dickinson was born in Washington, D.C., and grew up in Maryland. Her father, Harold F. Searles, was a psychoanalyst, and her mother, Sylvia, was a nurse. In 1969, Dickinson met her first husband, Hugh Dickinson (whose surname she still uses as her stage name), moving to his native United Kingdom with him the following year. They were married for five years.[1] She married the British actor Peter Davison on 26 December 1978, and they were divorced in 1994. Together they composed and performed the theme tune to the 1980s children's programme Button Moon. They have a daughter, Georgia Moffett,[3] born 25 December 1984, who is also an actress.

Dickinson married her third husband, a second British actor and singer, Mark Osmond, on 16 August 2009. The wedding was filmed for Four Weddings, a reality TV show where four couples compete to have theirs voted the best wedding; hers came third. Osmond is the lead singer of the band Bigger Than Mary who played at the wedding. Her grandson gave her away. The wedding took place in Shepperton, where the couple lived at the time.[4] Dickinson became a British citizen the same year. With her husband, she runs the Shepperton-based stage school Close Up Theatre School.[5]

Film and TV credits

Her film and TV roles include:

She also revoiced some of the female voice trumpets (as well as the "1, 2, 3, 4, Teletubbies!" line at the start of the opening titles) in Teletubbies for the American market.

Other acting roles

Both Dickinson and then husband Peter Davison appeared together in Doctor Who producer John Nathan-Turner's production of the holiday pantomime Cinderella in 1983. They also appeared in a stage production of The Owl and the Pussycat, and Barefoot in the Park, a London stage production from 1984, as a pair of American newlyweds adjusting to life in their new high-rise apartment.

In 1997 she played Eunice Hubbel in Peter Hall's production of A Streetcar Named Desire at Theatre Royal, Haymarket.

She has played Queen Camilla in Carlisle pantomime production of Snow White & the Seven Dwarves in 2007, and in 2008 she played Fairy Godmother at the Towngate Theatre Basildon's production of Cinderella & once again in the 2009 Harlow Playhouse theatre production of Cinderella alongside her now husband Mark Osmond. From 18 December 2010 to 9 January 2011 Dickinson played the evil Queen Malificent in the pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Corn Exchange in Exeter.[7] From 13 December 2014 to 4 January 2015 Dickinson played Queen Whoppa in the pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk at Exeter Corn Exchange.

She played Debbie in White Van Man series 1 episode 5 "Honest", first broadcast on 12 April 2011.[8] The series stars her daughter Georgia Moffett. She provides many voices including those of Granny Jojo, Mrs. Jotunheim, Orange lady, and the cupcake woman from The Amazing World of Gumball and is the voice of Grandma Tracey in the 2015 Thunderbirds revival.

In 2014, she understudied Angela Lansbury in the West End production of Blithe Spirit – co-starring Simon Jones, who she worked with on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy – but she never got to perform Madame Arcati, other than in the public understudy run, as Lansbury did not miss a single performance.
