Watch Joanna Lumley Explain Her Workout In This 1968 Video: ‘I’ve Never Been A Skinny Bird’
IN 1968, a 21-year-old Joanna Lumley told us about her keep-fit regime. “I’ve never been a skinny bird” – not like Twiggy – says Lumley. The “Duffy” she references is Brian Duffy, the “short, fat heterosexual” photographer of what came to be known as Swinging Sixties.
For three years, Duffy captured Lumley the model on camera. But Lumley the actress was less recognisable, having appeared on screen as a patient in Emergency Ward 10 and an early episode of the Bruce Forsyth Show.
But stardom was not long away.
