Bronwyn Baud, originally from Australia, was an actress and singer, whose professional career spanned many different areas, including theatre, television, cabaret, recording and concerts. Theatre work included West End, Rep, Fringe and both national and European tours during which she mostly specialised in musical theatre.
The highlights of her career were playing Mary Magdalene in the original West End production of Jesus Christ Superstar, an RSC tour of The Two Gentlemen of Verona and playing the leading role of Dr Lesley Skellman, in a BBC TV drama series, The Country Boy.
Bronwyn was a lively, warm-hearted, enthusiastic member of AWL. I knew her through AWL and also through many other groups as she was a very busy singer and actress who never stopped training and learning her craft. Not that she needed to! As a singer, she had played leading roles in the West End, including Mary Magdalene in Jesus Christ Superstar. And she had a busy acting career, on television and stage. One of her last roles was in The Crown. There isn’t room to mention all the other jobs she did and I doubt I could remember them all, but they included Alexander teacher, tutor, chaperone, supply teacher, singing teacher, tour guide, and care home singer. She also had time for many hobbies - she was a star baker, and kept us attendees at Scaffold’s Shakespeare workshops well supplied with cake. Most of all, she was someone who loved her family and her friends - always up for a chat and a good laugh. Her positivity and love for life shone through the blog she kept during her illness. She displayed so much courage, wisdom and joy. I miss her.
Bron had a effervescent personality who brought charm, passion and dedication to whatever role she was given. Always improving herself and doing self tapes and by God what a voice. Still have her voice in my head.
Bron was a force field of energy and warmth who will be deeply missed by her family and friends. I feel privileged to have worked with and known her over the years. The rainbow that emerged as we left Bron’s memorial service in Kew seemed a fitting tribute to her - we have lost a fine woman who possessed such a shining talent.
