I remember Vicky as the first young person I knew who died. I was in DAG and did props for Daisy Pulls it Off and remember the expectation that Vicky was going to do well. It was good to see this fitting tribute to a rising star who we lost too soon.

I was around Victoria's age when Threads came out in the States, and her character hit me to the soul. What an amazing actress and loved her in The Nanny. A damn tragedy.

Having discussed Threads with colleagues, (I live and work in Sheffield) I watched the film again today on YouTube. Years since I'd seen it. I knew of Nicky Lane (Michael), as he's from my hometown of Thorne. But I was very sad to hear Victoria died in the 90s at the age of 21. Awful. I'm pretty damn sure she'd have been a major, famous and acclaimed actress now if death hadn't claimed her. xx

I watched Threads last night for at least the tenth time and decided to do what Paul did. It is indeed sad. Victoria only had a small part in the movie but her talents were very evident. It's a big loss.

Popping in again to pore over pictures and text, and once again sigh over the loss of such a compelling young actor. I am glad the site is still up; reading the other guest comments is very heartwarming and cathartic. We all feel for her, and for our loss. Keep it going, and thank you again. I hope you're smiling, Victoria, wherever you may be.

I was a young teenager when movies like The Day After and Threads were broadcast. I only found out about Threads a week or so ago and had to watch it. The Day After was disturbing enough, but Threads conveyed such a grim and desperate vision of the years following such a war that it’s good that I’m only now seeing it as an adult. Such a moving performance by Victoria, I was looking to see what other movies she may have been in only to find out her life was cut short in such a terrible manner. Very sad.

I just heard about Victoria's story via Wikipedia. It's a shame such a talented actress had such a fate at so young an age. She certainly stole the show in her scenes in the movie Threads with a riveting performance of magnetic quality and conviction. A big part of the reason that I feel the movie is a classic.

Just finished watching Threads for the second time in about three years. I decided to check on information regarding the cast and was saddened to learn that Victoria passed away in 1990 at such a young age. I too was born in 1969 and learning of her passing leaves me a bit unsettled but at the same time confident that she is now in a much better place. Godspeed Victoria.

I fell in love with her after seeing her in the movie Threads. What a shame and tragic way her life ended. Hope she is looking down on us and smiling with gratification.

i grew up with the threat of the atomic bomb. i remember the weapons being driven through my then city in the south of England when i was 12 and 13. i watched'threads' in 1984 with a group of college friends when we were 16. this film and its images have always haunted me, as did the role played by Victoria. i never forgot 'jane' and wanted to find out what happened to Victoria after speaking with my own son today about this film, and how it affected my life and my feelings towards war and world destruction in general. so tonight i looked for victoria.. i am so very saddened to hear she died so young.. such a tragic loss. she would have gone on to greatness. This website is a wonderful memory of her. RIP Victoria. you are in my thoughts.

This is a very nice tribute. Like many, Threads was a very vivid memory, also like many, once on line out of interest I looked up the cast on imdb,com and was saddened to read of Victoria's tragic death. Both Threads and her death in one sense seem so long ago, however that film and Victoria's vivid performance still burn brightly.

I found your website whilst trying find footage about childrens TV shows that I remember watching as a kid. I remember watching Letty as a boy. I was very sad to read that Victoria died so young. I did not realise that Victoria is the same actress in Threads. I watched Threads many times as a teenager in the 80s and never made the connection until today. Well done with this website by the way, it's a lovely tribute. RIP x
