Karen Dotrice

  1. Fiona Fullerton, Nicholas and Alexandra, 1970.  Karen, the little girl with  Mary Poppins as her nanny grew up to  audition for  the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna – the (maybe) sole survivor  of the 1918 assassination  of the entire royal family.: Fullerton, Julie Dawn Cole, Lesley Dunlop and Deborah Makepeace were also tested. Since 2004, Karen has been a Disney Legend.  Because, of course, she little Jane Banks in Mary Poppins. And I travelled to the Dotrice  manse, called Greystone, near to Shipstone-on-Stout, deep in the Warwickshire countryside, in 1964 to interview her.  She was… nine!
