Patricia Cutts (20 July 1926 - 6 September 1974)[1] was an English film and television actress.


Born in London, Cutts was the daughter of the writer-director Graham Cutts. Her first roles were small parts in American films such as I Was a Male War Bride and The Man Who Loved Redheads and the television shows Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Perry Mason. She continued to work consistently in film and television on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the 1950s, including a small appearance in North by Northwest and alongside Vincent Price in The Tingler. In 1958 she appeared in the film Merry Andrew as Letitia Fairchild. In the 1960s her screen appearances were restricted to guest spots on television shows such as The Lucy Show, Car 54, Where Are You?, Adventures in Paradise, and Playhouse 90.

After several quiet years she returned to acting in the 1972 British television series Spyder's Web before accepting the role of Blanche Hunt in the top rated ITV soap opera Coronation Street in 1974. It would have been her most high profile regular role to date. However, producers were shocked when, after appearing in only two episodes, Cutts was found dead at her London flat, aged 48. An inquest into her death produced a verdict of suicide. The role of Blanche Hunt was taken over by Maggie Jones, who played the part until her own death on 2 December 2009.
