    ABOUT: Former Carry On actress Liz Fraser has died aged 88.The comic actress had a leading role in the British television's first soap opera, Sixpenny Corner on ITV from 1955 to 1956.Best known for her recurring role as perennially dizzy blonde in the Carry On franchise, buxom Liz Frazer starred in several Carry On films during the 1960s and 1970s.The south Londoner was in a number of the early Carry On films: Carry On Regardless (1961), Carry On Cruising (1962), and Carry On Cabby (1963), but was sacked by producer Peter Rogers after casually saying the series could be better marketed.She re-appeared in the series in Carry On Behind (1975), her salary apparently half of what it had been before.The British Comedy Society tweeted: 'Very sad to learn that the wonderful Liz Fraser has died.She was a delight.' She died on Thursday in the Brompton Hospital, London.Fraser defined herself as the bighearted comedy cockney blonde, attracting a string of admirers including Sean Connery ('we played lots of poker') and Stanley Baker.Her first notable film part was I'm All Right Jack (1959), where she played Cynthia, daughter of Fred Kite, the bolshie shop steward and the role which made Peter Sellers a star.The Boulting brothers were struggling to cast Cynthia, and Fraser was intially rejected by the directors.She later recalled: 'He couldn't be bothered because it was lunchtime,' she later recalled, 'but he said: 'Have make-up do something with her and I'll see her after lunch.'So they put me in a different bra and a very tight sweater with a tight belt and a long wig and eyelashes so I couldn't even recognise myself.Then I did the audition for John and I got the part.' The film, made in black and white, became the biggest box office hit of the year.
