Character actress, Dandy Nichols, was born Daisy Sander on May 21, 1907 in Hammersmith, England. Nichols died at the age of 78 on Feb 6, 1986 in London, England .
Dandy Nichols was a British actress whose apologetic manner turned to truculence with the passing of the years as her characters began to stand up for themselves. She started off as maids, chars and housewives, but her image changed especially with her long-running TV role as Else the "silly old moo" wife of the monstrous Alf Garnett in "Till Death Us Do Part", and she was allowed some abrasive dialogue and more interesting roles in her declining years.(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Illustrated Dictionary of Film Character Actors).
