Ngaire Dawn Porter 
      New Zealand-born British actress (b. Jan. 22, 1940, Napier, N.Z.—d. April 10, 2001, London, Eng.), became one of British television's first romantic sex symbols for her portrayal of the mistreated beauty Irene Forsyte in The Forsyte Saga, the BBC's 26-part adaptation of John Galsworthy's novel sequence. The series, which was first broadcast in 1967, achieved equal success in the U.S. and numerous other countries and brought Porter international fame. Although she starred in the TV series The Protectors in the 1970s and had a successful stage and screen career, she never fully escaped the image of Irene. Porter was appointed OBE in 1970.
