Hi Greg:

I will try to get the book.  Maybe on ebay.

The post from Bob Sorel was March 2007.  You can go on www.imdb.com and type in Jill Townsend.  There are a few postings about her but not many.  A few of us try to keep it going.

Jim

Hi Jim

Thanks for the very interesting info on Jill which as it's the first news I've ever heard about her I'll also copy over to her sub-forum on "Poldark - The Actors & Former Players". Any idea of a date or year this refers to ?

Also remembered there's another book called "Poldark Country" by David Clarke, published in 1977 by Bossiney Books Cornwall, as it has one or two good black and white pics of Jill at the cricket match. This book also comes up occasionally on E-Bay for about the same price as well.

Also....

Edit: Can't exactly remember now how many pics there are in each book so I might well have got the totals a bit mixed up....

Hi Greg:

Thanks for the information.

I recently came across a post on IMDB that is suppose to be from her husband, Bob Sorel.  It has some recent information about Jill and seems to be legitimate.  I have added it below.  If you go to the web site, http://www.nomadfoundation.org/imalole.html ,there is a picture of her there.  Unfortunatley, it is so small that it could be anyone.

Again, thanks for the info.

Jim

Jill left acting after completing "The Awakening". She explained it to me this way: "I was tired of dealing with the enormous egos of some of the people in the industry. I decided that I wanted to live a life that people would make a movie about rather than playing someone else's life".
So she has; She went to Vietnam during the war (1968) where she was sort of a nurse and saw firsthand the horrors of war. After leaving the stage she became an international mediator in the Mid-East, Southeast Asia, and mostly South Africa, where she was in constant danger.
She wrote a column for the London Daily Mail and helped to start the business school at Templeton College at Oxford. She became an environmental crusader against toxic dumping in England and stood for office, (fortunately she she didn't win as she wasn't a British citizen).
She moved back to the states in 1989 and shortly afterward we met and have been together ever since.
She led "rights of passage" work with high school students and troubled kids in jail.
She owned an art gallery in So CA. for a time where she promoted women artists.
Jill always has many, many "irons in the fire", and helps more people on a personal basis than anyone I've ever met.
Most recently, following a very rough trip into the Sahara in Niger last year, (the poorest country in the world) she was so moved by the poverty and circumstance in one village, Imalole, that she commited to raise money to build and fund a school and dig a well for the village. (nomadfoundation.org), click on Imalole. As of now she has raised enough to build the school.
This is a very small snippet of the amazing number of things she has done or is doing. (did I mention that she taught a course on negotiation at Harvard Law).
She is the most amazing and maddening person that I ever met and I'm still crazy about her. We've been married for 14 years and live in a small cabin in the mountains of Southern Cal......Bob

P.S. As I write this she is preparing for a trip to Peru to participate in ceremonies at Lake Titicaca with Mayan and Aztec elders and Shamans from around the world to pray for peace and healing in the world.

Hi Jim and welcome to the Forum smile I agree with you about Jill, a lovely lady and a very fine actress. I never realised until long after that she was American as her English accent was so good  !

If you haven't heard of it, there's also a book called "Making Poldark" by Robin Ellis published in the Seventies that comes up now and again on E-Bay with quite a few photos of Jill off set as well as at a charity cricket match. Usually they go very cheaply too, little more than £5 or so plus postage.

Any idea where she is or what she's doing these days ?

Greg

Hello to all.

I am a newbie and want to wish you all a good hello.

I am an avid Jill Townsend fan.  It is too bad that she did not do more.  I admired her greatly when she was in Cimarron Strip.  Years later, when watching the Poldark series, I became a fan of the actress who played Elizabeth.  She looked familiar but I could not place her.  Eventually, I realized that it she was one and the same.  At least I am consistant.

If any of you have recent photos or clips of Jill Townsend, I would appreciate it greatly if you would pass them along.

Once again, thanks for the opportunity of joining your web site.

Jim
