June Laverick

June Laverick (born 11 June 1931 Redcar, North Yorkshire, England) was an English film, television and stage actress. She was once described as "a popular lightweight leading actress of the day" and is probably best remembered as the (fictional) wife of Dickie Henderson in The Dickie Henderson Show. Before June was born her parents ran a public house in Bishop Auckland but then returned to Redcar to run The Royal Hotel on the sea front near Redcar Pier. In 1931 June Laverick was born in Laburnum Road, Redcar. In her youth June attended White House school and ballet school. She determined at an early age that she wanted a career in light entertainment. June followed an acting career in theatre, film and television and after retiring from acting in her 30s June moved back to Redcar, marrying an ICI process worker and briefly taking over the licence of The Royal Hotel before returning south alone. In the 1950s June worked in the theatre in musicals, comedies and revues, and had a variety of film roles contracted to the Rank Organisation.
