Vamp Until Ready: An Autobiography
The no-holds-barred, eagerly awaited autobiography of one of Britain's most popular icons - known to millions from her many film and TV appearances, including Dynasty and The Brothers. Kate O'Mara writes here: "Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs Worthington! advised Noel Coward is his famous song. But mine did, and when I was only four years old! But my mother was only doing what came naturally, as I'm part of six generations of a theatrical family - we've built theatres and run our own theatre companies around the country, as well as being actors and actresses. A peripatetic childhood and eleven schools later, I went into the family business! For over 40 years I've done everything from Shakespeare to Hollywood soaps, from Restoration Comedy to Cult Television Drama, from Westerns to Pantomime. I have been nothing if not diverse! My personal life, however, has been a disaster area. Rape, desertion, adoption, divorce and numerous relationships with very much younger men. And this for someone who sees herself as an intellectual and can't be doing with sex at all...Oh well, the show must go on!"
