"Joanna Lumley as the formidable and only slightly loopy Delilah Stagg".
Good Lookin' out Hapi.
F&S write the best character names.
Ab Fab names are great (Edina Monsoon) of course but my favorite names were from the never-produced "Mirror Ball" (For some reason it never made it past the pilot)
The show centers around Vivienne Krell (Saunders) and Jackie Riviera (Joanna Lumley), two aging stage actresses who live in vertically adjacent flats. The two are of questionable talent, and their careers seem to be at a standstill. During the course of the pilot, Vivienne has the opportunity to be cast in a new show but delivers a horrifying rendition of the standard "Send in the Clowns", thanks in part to Jackie's off-kilter advice (Jackie shouts at her from off-stage to "Sparkle! SPARKLE!").
Julia Sawalha plays Freda Keill, a more serious actress and friend of the main characters, and Jane Horrocks plays Yitta Hilberstam, a vicious German actress. June Whitfield appears as Dora Vermouth, a former vaudeville actress who spends most of her time intoxicated at the local pub.
