I'm so glad to see that you are keeping the memory of this young lady alive after so many years. I watched Threads again the other day, having not seen it since it was originally broadcast, and as I often do, later searched IMDB to see what the actors in it are up to these days. I was truly saddened to read that Victoria had passed away so tragically, particularly as she was so young and had so much life ahead of her. I also would like to include the other victims of that terrible accident in that sentiment.

New content is really great. She was a lovely young lady. So Sad, but it nice to see her memory lives on. Well Done.

Thank you :)

It's me again, Will. I just wanted to thank you *SO* much for letting me know about the new treasure trove of updated articles and images. I tried to reply through email but got a 'mailer-daemon' error so I wanted to be sure to come by and let you know how much I appreciate you. The articles and pictures (and the pics on the main article pages) are such a treat, and a wonderful surprise. It really adds SO much to what little we have, what little I know, of her career and life in theatre. It's truly precious treasure, and I am so happy for the site to have it now. It makes this place that much greater a tribute.

I hope you and yours are faring well and staying healthy in these rather bizarre times. Here in the Colonies it's been a particularly whacked out and stressful time lately... and it's nowhere near to being over yet. Pray for your prodigal cousins across the pond! :)

Thanks - and another thanks for those bringing this new material to us. I really wasn't expecting much (if any) updating, but here we are. Quite amazing what is out there.

Another visit to Victoria, this time during some of the strangest days the world has ever endured -- global pandemic, civil unrest, political upheaval and the outright tearing of the social fabric at all corners, it seems -- and somehow, wrapped up inside it all, are the memories of my early teens, the late, great and terrible Cold War and those sweaty days and nightmare nights of wondering if tomorrow would even be recognizable if it were come at all.

Those memories, those feelings, are the only ones I have in my data banks that can even come close to how unsure and upside-down everything seems to be in 2020. And yet somehow, a revisit with Threads and Victoria is cathartic and even calming, a kind of sad hope that in reality, there have been and again will be better, brighter things in life, even if they can sometimes be taken from us far too early. All of you on the M62 that wretched day are forever missed and eternally loved... and I wish peace and love to all reading this. Stay safe, be well. <3

Victoria, was a up and coming actress, with a bright future. I'm sorry for the family's loss, and we have lost a good one. rest in peace, Victoria......

Stumbled to here and wish to say you and your work is not forgotten. Others in the M62 tragedy are not forgotten, nor are the ones that love you. Threads impacted on me as a kid, your acting was brilliant! I believe in heaven, I know you are there whilst remain in hearts and minds of many. Rest in peace, but party if you want to!! X

I just woke from a nightmare of nuclear destruction -- they are much rarer these days but such dreams have assailed my sleep since my early teens -- wherein the sparse existence I led, I shared with Jane. I woke up and had to just come here to read a bit again, 'see' her, and know that in reality, she was happy, loved and loving, and I again state my fervent hope that she is looking down and smiling at we who so appreciate her work, grieve her passing so young, and who hope no one forgets she was here, for a brief but glimmering moment in time.

Another visit. I am so glad this site is still here, and I don't care how often it is updated; I wouldn't care if it never updated again. I recently got the Severin Films Threads DVD (worthwhile purchase, trust me), and finally was able to show it to my wife and see her reaction to all of it, after hearing so much about it from me over the years. And she was just as impressed with Victoria's performance as I have always been. Once the credits began to roll after her stunning last frame, I knew I would be visiting here once again. She was just fantastic. And I am still trying to locate Letty online. :)

Hallo again. As I've said in previous entries here, I visit this site from time to time, not caring if anything has changed or been added, but just to revisit Victoria in some small way beyond just Threads. It is always a kind of grief therapy for me as well, every time I visit.

As I mentioned in my first (and was it *the* first?) entry in the guestbook, and as so many others have mentioned too, learning of her death was a shock to my system, so sad, so very tragic, and for some reason I find myself, once in a while, needing to exorcise my grief a bit. I really miss what we might have seen from her career. Thanks again for this site, I will always stop by at times.

And Victoria?

I hope there is a Heaven, and that you are looking at us on this site and can know how much you were loved, the impact you made not only on an audience but even more on the friends who had the good fortune to have known you personally. I wish I'd been one of them. Rest in peace, dear.

Saw her in Threads. Stunning performance and intense movie. I immediately wanted to know more about Victoria. Such a tragic loss. I'm sure she would have gone on to have a long and fruitful career in the movie industry. I'd like to find Letty and any other movies she was in.

My memories of Victoria in Threads and Nanny come 'round every so often, and my sadness at her death leads me, every time, to again visit this lovely tribute site. I feel her passing as a personal loss, somehow; it is as immediate and affecting as the first time I'd read of her dying. This site always helps me exorcise some of that, and I am so grateful. She was wonderful as Nicola and stunning as Jane and I need to find some Letty video, somewhere, but I can only think she's bloody brilliant in that too. I'd be glad to watch it but it would also make me sadder, at times. Such is loss, and grief. This site is good for me, and so many people who need it. Thank you for providing it. I'll be back again, you can count on it. (I believe I have the very first entry in the guestbook waaaay back in '07).

I still watch Threads from time to time so she's always in my thoughts. Occasionally I look for Letty - perhaps some day it will turn up, you'll be the first to know. And sorry about your previous guestbook entry from July - I'm not sure why I wasn't notified when you posted, I only saw it when I approved this message in admin. But yeah, I need to get some security on this site so it remains online in the event of whatever.

It's me again, revisiting. Every so often I am reminded of Victoria by some trigger or other, and I immediately get a kick in my gut, a feeling not dissimilar to the one I felt the day I discovered she'd died. It hits me every time, the tragedy, the needless tragedy of it. And so, I come back here and go through everything here, once again, feeling as new as the night I discovered the site... and just as happy it existed as I was then. I know it never really updates, pictures and articles with her are obviously rare, but do not let this site go down, please. I come to it every time. I wish I knew WHY Victoria was so deep my heart, and why her death broke it. I just feel it, know it. I hope, if you are anywhere to see and know all of this mess we mortals put together as a small tribute to you, that you are resting peacefully and tell you how you are beloved and remembered. Much love.

Once again, I visit this loving tribute site to remember and grieve; a loss now decades gone, but as immediate in my heart as my sorrow. I love reading the other comments and shared memories, and seeing the images of such a compelling, attractive, and unique young actress. I remember feeling so terribly sad when I found out about her passing -- it was as if Jane had died, that somehow the 'war' in Threads had 'won', and taken the last bit of life and hope in the human story. I will forever miss you Victoria. I will forever miss what could have been. I am sure I will be back again, soon enough, and writing more. I could go on for days. Rest in real peace and light and love, Victoria.

Found this website through a link included on somebody's signature on DYR forum. I watched Threads when it was first broadcast & I have always preferred it to 'The Day After'. Victoria was brilliant in Threads and as has already been said extremely emotionally mature for a girl her age. I often wonder what Victoria would have gone on to achieve in her tragically cut short acting career. You are truly missed Victoria xx
