Happy Birthday Claudie Blakley!

Today, January 4th, former Pride & Prejudice star Claudie Blakley's (best known to P&P Fans as Charlotte Lucas turned Mrs. Collins in P&P movie) birthday.

Claudie, born Claudia, Blakley is the sister of Kirsten Blakley, the lead singer with indie band Little Spitfire, and their father was Alan Blakley, bassist with Brian Poole's Tremeloes, who had several pop hits in the 1960s. Sadly Alan died of cancer in 1996 and missed seeing his daughters' success. Claudie graduated from London's Central School ... See full bio (on IMDB).
