It’s a dog’s life for Virgina Maskell


Virginia Maskell

ACTRESS Virginia Maskell shouted into the phone: “Please hold on a moment. They’re off again.” When she returned, she was more than slightly out of breath.

“It’s the dogs,” puffed Virginia, who is our inside colour cover girl. “They just dashed out of the front door and I’ve had to chase them round the garden.”

Virginia and husband Geoffrey Shakerley – son of baronet Sir Cyril Shakerley – have a rare Tibetan dog called Rupert. And visiting Rupert is Alooka, his Tibetan girl-friend.

“When they’re together there’s no holding them,” said Virginia, who is appearing in “The White Rat”, Thursday’s episode of Gideon’s Way.

She plays the girl in the life of an underworld character. A far cry from Virginia’s convent upbringing and her one-time hope of becoming a nun.
