Default British Actors in Prisoner

I know it's an Australian soap opera, but it's surprising the number of BRITISH actors who appeared in Prisoner over the years.

I've always assumed that PATSY KING who played Wentworth gaffer, Erica Davidson is British because of her cut glass English accent.

The actress who played blackmailer, Barbara Fields also had a distinctly english accent.

GEORGE MALLABY, a writer on the show who also played Wentworth's resident social worker, Paul Reid was British.

So too ILONA RODGERS who played prison inmate and 'psychic' Zara Moonbeam who can currently be seen in episodes from volume 12.

NIGEL BRADSHAW who played Wentworth 'screw' and love interest of Meg Morris, Dennis Cruckshank is also British although I believe he hails from Hampshire and not Yorkshire (his accent in Prisoner was effected).

Can anyone think of any others?

EDIT I've just thought of another one. How could I have forgotten AMANDA MUGGLETON who played Chrissie Latham. She was born in London and emigrated to Oz in her twenties.

Julia Blake can currently be seen in volume 13 episodes playing Alice Dodds, the stern replacement for Judy at Driscoll House.

Reg Evans, who was killed in the Victoria bush fires of 2009 was also another British actor who appeared in the serial. He too can be seen in volume 13 playing the roguish Mick 'Foxy' Lawson - penpal of Lizzie Birdsworth.
