Eleanor Bron (born 14 March 1938[1]) played an art gallery visitor in the Fourth Doctor story City of Death. She returned during the Sixth Doctor's time to play the villain Kara in Revelation of the Daleks, for which she was credited under her real name. She also played Ileana de Santos in the Big Finish Doctor Who audio story Loups-Garoux.

Having been suggested by John Cleese to Graham Williams in the hopes of keeping the appearance devoid of publicity, Williams agreed and formally requested a pseudonymous credit for Bron on 17 May 1979.[2] In her case, it was not granted.[3]


Beyond Doctor Who, Bron has an extensive resume of dramatic and comedy film and TV roles dating to the early 1960s, including such classic films as Help!, Alfie, Bedazzled and Turtle Diary. In the 1970s she also participated in the "Pleasure at Her Majesty's" comedy event (alongside her City of Death co-star John Cleese) which inaugurated the Secret Policeman's Ball fund-raisers from Amnesty International.
