Description

This is a black and white photo, dated 1978, of the English actor Jacqueline Tong. Tong, wearing a velvet jacket over a white shirt, appears to be at a bar, in front of an optic spirit dispenser for Powers Whiskey. 

Born in 1951, Tong is known for her television, radio and stage work including Heart of the Country (BBC, 1986), Middlemarch (PBS, 1994), and The Politician’s Wife (PSB, 1996) as well as several appearances in Coronation Street. However she is probably best known for her role as Daisy Peel in the period television drama series Upstairs, Downstairs (1973-1975) for which she received an Emmy nomination in 1977 – a year before this picture was taken in 1978. Tong's film appearances include How to Get Ahead in Advertising (Bruce Robinson, 1989), Princess Caraboo (Michael Austin, 1994), Upstairs, Downstairs Remembered: 25th Anniversary (1996) and Angel (François Ozon, 2007) with Sam Neill, Michael Fassbender and Charlotte Rampling.
