Jean Marsh - Jean Marsh Stunned By Death Reports
Veteran British actress Jean Marsh was stunned to read reports of her death recently - and the false story prompted a flurry of phone calls from concerned friends and family.
The Upstairs, Downstairs star's passing was incorrectly reported, prompting fans to pay tribute to the 77 year old - and Marsh admits she was touched by the messages.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "It was reported that I had been cremated and everything had been kept secret so my family could grieve in private.
"I had lots of people calling up to check if I was okay. It was nice to see so many kind obituaries... one fan wrote: 'Jean Marsh is dead. Oh s**t.' I thought that was hilarious. I might even have it on my gravestone - but not for a while yet."
