Interesting Facts

1 Aunt of 'Cobra Starship' keytarist Victoria Asher.
2 Associated with Mike McGear & Roger McGough's album, "McGough & McGear" in 1968. She played instruments on some of the songs.
3 Has a rose named after her. The Jane Asher is a patio rose that grows to 10-14 inches in height, is pinkish-red, blooms all summer, and has a pleasant perfume.
4 Received an Honorary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Bristol in July 2001
5 Her father, Dr. Richard Asher, was the first to identify Munchausen's syndrome, naming it after Baron Munchausen instead of himself (which she commented was typical of him). It's a disease where the afflicted fakes physical illness - usually acute, dramatic, and convincing - and wanders from hospital to hospital for treatment.
6 Speaks Latin and French
7 She is an Associate Member of RADA.
8 Met her future husband, Gerald Scarfe, in 1971 at a party given by satirical magazine Private Eye. Afterwards they became lovers, which resulted in the birth of their first child Katie Geraldine Scarfe on April 17, 1974. They got married in 1981 when expecting their second child Alexander.
9 Her parents were married on July 27, 1943.
10 Her mother was born on February 26, 1914. Her maternal grandparents' names were Edward Granville Eliot and Clara Louisa Phelips.
11 Her father's full name was Richard Alan John Asher and her paternal grandfather's name was Felix Asher.
12 Was Paul McCartney's muse for much of the 1960s; "Here, There And Everywhere" and many other songs were written with Jane in mind. They were engaged for seven months until finally separating in July 1968.
13 Paul McCartney moved into the spare bedroom in the attic of the Asher household at 57 Wimpole Street, London, in November 1963 and stayed until early 1966.
14 Met The Beatles when she was VIP'd backstage after one of their shows; all four instantly proposed marriage. When it became obvious she was interested in Paul, the others discreetly left the two in his hotel suite... only to come back later and find them discussing their favourite foods.
15 Plays the piano, guitar and flute.
16 Has a stepdaughter, Araminta, from husband Gerald Scarfe's first marriage.
17 By the time she was fifteen, she had appeared in 8 films, made 9 television appearances, over 100 radio appearances and was in five plays.
18 Attended Miss Lambert's Academy for Young Ladies and Queens College, both in Marylebone, London.
19 Her father, Dr. Richard Asher, was a psychiatrist and her mother Margaret Asher was a classical music professor at the Guildhall School of Drama and Music. Her mother used to play the oboe in symphony orchestras but quit in order to have a family. However she continued to give private lessons in her home; one of her students was future 'Beatles' producer George Martin, long before Jane and Paul McCartney ever met.
20 Has a younger sister, Clare Asher, who acted in the BBC radio series "Mrs. Dale's Diary" in the late 1950s and who is now a schoolteacher in London.
21 Played 'Alice' in a 1958 recording of 'Alice in Wonderland'. Returned to the series as Alice's mother in Dreamchild (1985).
22 Younger sister of Peter Asher who was one of the members of the singing duo Peter and Gordon and later became a record producer.
23 Mother, with Gerald Scarfe, of Katie Scarfe, Alexander Alex Scarfe and Rory Scarfe.
24 She made her West End debut in 1960, followed by the Bristol Old Vic in 1965. In 1976, she joined the National Theatre.
25 She made her first professional appearance at the age of five in the film Crash of Silence (1952).


1 Red hair


1 I look at myself objectively and in a way I see myself as a commodity. Your name becomes somehow outside yourself. Now, when I'm at home being Mrs. Scarfe, that's when I'm most myself.
2 Of all the things I do, acting is the thing that grabs most, but there's another level on which it strikes me as being a little silly. In the end you're dressing up and deciding to be somebody.
