Sylvia Anderson who was famous for being the voice of Lady Penelope in the popular 1960’s television show “Thunderbirds” had died aged 88.
Anderson, who co-created the marionette puppet show with her late ex-husband Gerry, also worked on similar projects including Joe 90, Stingray and Captain Scarlet.
Launching on British TV screens in 1965, “Thunderbirds” followed a secret rescue performing organisation and its elegant Lady Penelope character, who was driven around in a Rolls Royce, was modeled on Anderson. The show lasted for just two seasons but has gained a huge following since.
Her former husband Gerry Anderson died in 2012.
