Daphne Ashbrook

Daphne Ashbrook’s Second Coming!

Released just in time for the holiday season, it’s the official launch of the second edition of Daphne Ashbrook’s memoir, Dead Woman Laughing – An Actors ‘Take’ from Both Sides of the Camera.

Dead Woman Laughing: An Actor's 'Take' From Both Sides of the Camera

Witty, self-effacing and painfully honest; the themes of life, death and laughter come together as Daphne Ashbrook recounts her many on-and off-screen scrapes with mortality.

Packed with anecdotes stretching from her childhood years right up to her memorable performances in the 1996 Doctor Who movie, in which she played Dr. Grace Holloway, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as the titular character in Melora – Daphne discovers the surprising patterns and hilarious absurdities that accompany being a modern-day professional actress.

A signed copy of the second edition of Dead Woman Laughing – An Actor’s ‘Take’ from Both Sides of the Camera is available now from Daphne’s own website.

You can also pick up the paperback, released at the end of October, from from Amazon for £12.48.

Alternatively, pick up a full colour edition for Kindle for just £6.39 from Amazon


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
