Louise Gold

Louise Gold (b. 1956), trained at the Arts Educational School, is an actress and puppeteer who has done extensive stage work in Britain (especially in musical theatre), as well as being a recurring puppeteer in various Muppet productions. She was the only British member of the Muppet Show performing team.

In the Muppet Show Fan Club newsletter (Vol. 3, No. 1, 1981), the 5ft9" tall performer described the hiring process: "They were looking for a girl strong enough and tall enough to manipulate the puppets. I think I was chosen for my size, not my talent!"

As a puppeteer she went on to become a founder member of the team behind the satirical TV show Spitting Image (that programme's original Leading Puppeteer).
