Janina Faye

  1. Candace Glendenning, Nicholas and Alexandra, 1970.  . Twenty-three young Brits (including  two becoming real-life lovers of two different Doctor Whos!) were seen for the four daughters of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia in this, alas, ponderous account of their of their tragic lives. Jenny Agutter, Janina Faye, Pamela Franklin, Candace Glendenning, Olivia Hussey and  Lord Bangor’s daighjter, Lalla Ward, were  tested for the third daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia: the Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna. The entire royal family was assassinated in 1918.  (Faye  had better luck at the BBC, winning Amy  March in Little Women; Jo was  Angela Down – up here for Grand Duchess Olga).
