W is for Mrs. Winters

In "Masks of War", I had a little old lady working in the Masks for Facial Disfigurement Department, the mask painter. The POV character, Lieutenant Grey, likes to picture her painting flowers and landscapes in her cottage by the sea...but along the way, he figures out that her talent is greater than it seems.


This is a publicity still for the Miss Marple series, but I though that Geraldine McEwan was perfect to play Old Mrs. Winters...

She’s the quintessential little old British lady.

That's an amazing article. Amazing set of circumstances all around.
