A London girl, Sylvia loved the occasional flutter on the horses but her real passion was the theater – she was intent on entering “the world of footlights and greasepaint”.
I don’t think she made it but she certainly had the looks; in fact I would say she was stunningly gorgeous. She always reminds me of another real ToCo beauty – Dawn Grayson; but somehow more amateur (in the kindest sense of the word), more credible as the girl next door when she lifted her skirt to give you an eyeful of stocking tops, suspenders and knickers. Definitely one of my favourites – but then I’m biased; I have a thing about pleated skirts and fully-fashioned stockings. And Sylvia invariably wore one or the other, sometimes both.
