Lead me through oblivion

It's another "fabulous at 50" birthday today - many happy returns to that eternal "supporting actress" Miss Lysette Anthony!

Way back in 1980 when she was 16, photographer David Bailey labelled her the "Face of the Eighties". With that accolade to propel her Miss Anthony soon launched a successful career as a model, and later turned to acting, appearing in such classic 80s series as Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and Three Up, Two Down, and the inevitable soaps such as Corrie, The Bill, Hollyoaks and Casualty - as well as roles in movies alongside stars of the calibre of Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Colin Firth, John Travolta and Hugh Grant, not to mention a succession of parts in horror movies (some spoof, some not). She also turned her talents to the stage - to much critical acclaim - appearing in West End and off-West End productions by writers as diverse as Alan Ayckbourn, Tennessee Williams, Henrik Ibsen and Noel Coward.

Yet numerous television appearances on from her debut, and poor Miss Anthony remains one of those familiar faces you know, but are never quite sure where from...

One of those places was her seductive and sinister part in the video by Depeche Mode for their 1993 single I Feel You. [Any excuse to play Depeche Mode!]

Lysette Anthony (born Lysette Chodzko, 26th September 1963)
