British actress, cook, writer and businesswoman. Asher made her acting debut at the age of five in "Mandy" and won acclaim in the movie "The Greengage Summer" in 1961. She has appeared in "Alfie" in 1966, "Brideshead Revisited" in 1981 and the television drama "Closing Numbers." Asher joined the National Theatre in 1976. After publishing a string of cookbooks, Asher branched into a novel, "The Longing," published in October 1996.

Even though perceived as prim, Asher is quietly dignified about being Paul McCartney's 'posh dollybird' for four years from age 17 and living with cartoonist Gerald Scarfe ten years before secretly marrying in 1983. They have three kids.
