Trivia

- Ferris spent much of her youth immersed in her work, never marrying until she was 38 when she married actor Roger Frost. When asked if she regrets this and wishes she had children instead she said . . .

I  was obsessed with work in my youth. It’s why I didn’t get married until I was 38 and the reason I didn’t have kids. Not having children isn’t a sadness in my life, though. I know I wouldn’t have been a half-bad mother, but that’s what happened. There’s no regretting it.

- In 2007 Ferris took part in the BBC Wales programme Coming Home to learn more about her Welsh family history.
