Happy Birthday Juliet Mills!

Many happy returns to the lovely Juliet Mills who celebrates her birthday today! Juliet, who has lived in America for many years, is of course best remembered by us Carry On fans for her starring role as Sally in the 1963 naval comedy, Carry On Jack.

Appearing in the 2015 ITV documentary Carry On Forever, Juliet was reunited with co-star Bernard Cribbins, and made it clear she was very proud of her Carry On association and looks back on her time filming with great fondness. Something which is always lovely to hear. 

Juliet worked for Peter Rogers and Gerald Thomas on two more films around the time of Carry On Jack. The first was the comedy-drama Twice Round the Daffodils, which featured an all star cast of the likes of Donald Sinden, Kenneth Williams, Lance Percival, Sheila Hancock, Ronald Lewis and Joan Sims. Juliet also starred in the 1963 district nurse comedy, Nurse On Wheels, forming a lovely double act with Esma Cannon, playing her mother and again enjoying a romantic pairing on screen with Ronald Lewis.

Of course Juliet is the daughter of legendary British actor Sir John Mills and his wife, the actress and writer Mary Hayley Bell. Juliet's sister is the famous child star and leading lady Hayley Mills. Juliet has been a resident in the United States since the 1970s and has been married to the actor Maxwell Caulfield since 1980. She has appeared in countless films and television series over in America and continues to appear on stage and screen to this day.

Whatever Juliet is up to today, I hope she has a very happy birthday.
