Jenny Tomasin shot to fame in the UK in the early 1970s when she joined the cast of Maîtres et valets (1971) playing the scullery maid Ruby. She stayed with the series right until the end, appearing in forty one episodes. When the series ended in 1975, plans were drawn up for a spin-off series following the further adventures of Ruby with Hudson and Mrs Bridges. Sadly the series was never made following the sad death of Angela Baddeley who played Mrs Bridges.After that, Tomasin joined Emmerdale Farm (1972) for a stint as Naomi Tolly from 1981-82 and made guest appearances in such shows as That's My Boy (1981) and Docteur Who (1963).Tomasin worked mainly in the theatre after that. Shows including a tour of Lettice and Lovage and a West End run in 2004 in The Marquise by Noël Coward playing yet another maid, this time called Alice.In later years Tomasin's TV appearances had been confined to talking about her time in Maîtres et valets (1971) but in 2005 all this changed when she returned to Emmerdale Farm (1972) - this time as a new character Noreen Bell, a cantankerous villager who seems certain to cause strife for those who get in her way.
