One of Britain’s best loved actresses, Annette Crosbie was born in Scotland and went on to win a scholarship to study at The Old Vic Theatre School. Annette went on the Comedy theatre in London. She appeared in plays at the Royal Court, the Mermaid Theatre, the West End before concentrating on television to enable her to care for her two young children. Two BAFTAs later she went on to win the hearts of national TV audiences as the long suffering wife of Victor Meldrew in the BBC hit series, ‘One Foot in the Grave’.
Annette now spends much of her time campaigning vigourously for the welfare of racing greyhounds and has had 6 greyhounds of her own since the start of her campaigning work. Annette is happy to have been able to use her TV profile to raise awareness of this problem.
Annette is the co-founder of Greyhounds UK which campaigns for the welfare of racing greyhounds on and off the track and into their retirement. She is patron of Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare and supports numerous other greyhound rehoming charities across the UK. She is also the President of the League Against Cruel Sports.
