Joan Sims Overview:

Character actress, Joan Sims, was born Irene Joan Marion Sims on May 9, 1930 in Laindon, Essex. Sims died at the age of 71 on Jun 28, 2001 in Chelsea, London .

Joan Sims was a cheery-looking, fair-haired British actress with a distinctive light voice and pinched lips. Almost entirely in comedy parts --- at first as curvaceous, man-hungry cockneys, sometimes with assumed upper-class accents, and later, with added weight -- she was a key member of the Carry On comedy team, usually playing nagging wives. She vanished from the cinema with the demise of that series.
