Lesley D Joseph (born 14 October 1945) is an English actress and broadcaster. Joseph was born in Northampton. She is best known for starring in the BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather from 1989-1998, in which she played Dorien Green, the Jewish next-door neighbour of the main characters Sharon and Tracy. Dorien was a snob and maneater who tried to convey the impression of being happily married to Marcus, an accountant, but whose chief interest was actually chasing after much younger men. The character considered herself stylish and irresistibly attractive, and usually dressed in a sexually provocative style. At the height of Joseph's fame she fronted the National Egg Awareness Campaign in 1993.
