Duvitski was born in Lancaster, Lancashire.[2][3][4] Her father was Polish. She trained at the East 15 Acting School in London. She has four children, including actress Ruby Bentall, with her actor husband Paul Bentall. Her youngest daughter Edith is the lead singer of the band 'FOURS'.[5]

Career Edit

Television Edit

Duvitski's principal television credits include the series Waiting for God (1990–1994), One Foot in the Grave (1990–2000), and Benidorm (since 2007). In the BBC's Vanity Fair she plays Mrs Crawley.

She has also appeared in the one-off production of Blue Remembered Hills by Dennis Potter, as well as in episodes of Foyle's War ("Fifty Ships"), Brush Strokes, Citizen Smith, Minder, Midsomer Murders, My Family, Man About the House, The Georgian House, The New Statesman, The Black Stuff by Alan Bleasdale, The Knowledge, Z-Cars, The Worst Week of My Life, Little Dorrit and, in 2013, as Emily Scuttlebutt in the CBeebies show Old Jack's Boat.[6]

In 2015, she starred in BBC sitcom, Boy Meets Girl.[7]

Films Edit

Duvitski had a small role opposite Laurence Olivier and Donald Pleasence in Dracula (1979), and appeared in the 1980 rock music film Breaking Glass. She also appeared in The Madness of King George (1994), About a Boy (2002), The New World (2005) and Angel (2007).

Theatre Edit

Duvitski first came to national attention in Abigail's Party, written and directed in 1977 by Mike Leigh. The play opened in April 1977 at the Hampstead Theatre, returning after its initial run in the summer of 1977, with a total of 104 performances. A suburban situation comedy of manners, the play is a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that had emerged in Britain in the 1970s. In November 1977 an abridged version of the play, lasting 104 minutes, was recorded at the BBC as a Play for Today. Duvitski plays Angela, a nurse, wife of Tony Cooper, appearing meek and somewhat childlike, unintelligent and tactless. She comes into her own only when host Laurence Moss suffers his fatal heart attack at the climax of the play.

Her theatre career has also included productions at Britain's National Theatre, Young Vic and Royal Shakespeare Company.

In 2007 she appeared on stage in the revival of English National Opera's On the Town. The production, which also included veteran British comic actress June Whitfield, saw Duvitski give a "touching comic account of Lucy Schmeeler, Hildy’s homely roommate".[8]
