Quadrophenia’s Leslie Ash displayed her smooth visage as she reunited with her former co-stars John Altman and Toyah Wilcox to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their film at Coventry’s Comic Con on Saturday afternoon.
The actress, 59 – who played Steph in the 1979 drama – grinned form ear-to-ear as she discussed the impact of the iconic movie four decades on from its original release.
Cutting an effortlessly chic look, the Where the Heart Is star donned a plunging semi-sheer blouse as she brought 70s nostalgia to the stage, alongside her fellow thespians.

The Holby City actress – who was left with a ‘trout pout’ after her collagen lip surgery went wrong in 2002 – enhanced her youthful-looking complexion with matte, neutral-toned make-up for her daytime appearance.
As well as a Q&A, attendees were treated to selfies with the some of the UK’s most legendary actors and actresses.
The cult movie, which had a soundtrack of songs by The Who, was set amid the real-life drama of mods and rockers fighting on Brighton beach in 1964.
In the film, leading character Jimmy (Phil Daniels), attempts to escape from his postal job by joining the Mods, a gang at loggerheads with their rivals, the Rockers.

The clash leads to trouble for Jimmy as well as a chance encounter with Steph, played by Leslie.
Since her rise to fame, Oxfordshire native Leslie has gone on to star in C.A.T.S. Eyes, Men Behaving Badly, Where the Heart Is and BBC drama Holby City.
Earlier this month, the Rosie Dixon – Night Nurse star discussed her health struggles after she contracted a ‘deadly strain’ of the MRSA superbug while hospitalised with a broken rib back 15 years ago.
Leslie was left with a spinal injury as a result of the infection, and was once told by doctors that she ‘would never walk again.’

On defying the odds and preserving her health, the TV star told OK! magazine: ‘I’ve retrained my body to learn how to balance again and I go to the gym four times a week to strengthen my legs.
‘I also do Pilates. I enjoy it. It does something good for my brain, all those endorphins.’
Screen star Phil, during an interview in 2015, said he could barely remember filming Quadrophenia.
He admitted: ‘All I can remember about the film is working really hard. We shot it all in six weeks and we did the end first. It was quite interesting and it’s kind of a nice way of doing a film where you do the end first, so at least you know where you’ve got to go with the character.’
Out in full force: The group were also joined by Trevor Laird (sixth from left) at the industry event
