"For me, bringing in Trisha was a personal kick. One of my favorite shows growing up was The Courtship of Eddie's Father and I had remembered her from the show."
Robin Gurland, Episode II Casting Director[src]

Trisha Noble (born Patricia Ann Ruth Noble on February 3, 1944 in Sydney, Australia) played Jobal Naberrie in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, although her scenes from Episode II did not make the final cut of the film.


Early lifeEdit

Noble was born at the Bethesda Hospital of Marrickville, a suburb of Sydney.[1] Her father was Clarence Lancelot "Buster" Noble, a comedian, singer and sergeant in the Warratahs Entertainment Unit in the AIF, and her mother Helen de Paul (née Helen McGoulrick), a choreographer and stage producer. She also has a younger sister named Amanda.[2] As a child, she appeared onstage with her parents in several of their productions. Her career began at the age of six performing on Saturday morning radio.


Noble is best known for her early fame as a teenage popular singer in the 1960s under the name Patsy Ann Noble. Her first single was "Like I'm in Love" / "I Love You So Much It Hurts", released in November 1960. She released many other singles and several albums, such as Just for You in 1962 and Hits and Rarities - The Story of Patsy Ann Noble in 1997. Noble won the Logie Award for Best Female Singer of the Year in 1961.

Noble also started her acting career in the 1960s, eventually taking the name 'Trisha Noble' to distance herself from her years as a teen singer. She appeared in many British, American and Australian TV series, including The Benny Hill Show, Callan, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Columbo, Executive Suite, Fantasy Island, The Rockford Files, Mrs. Columbo, The Love Boat, Strike Force, Hart to Hart, T.J. Hooker, Matt Houston, Water Rats and All Saints. She also appeared in one episode of the TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century as the superhuman villainess Sabrina.

In 1978, Noble appeared in the miniseries How the West Was Won. One of the series' other cast members was Christopher Lee (Count Dooku) who played "The Grand Duke". In 1982, she shared the screen with Bruce Spence (Tion Medon) in the television movie Deadline.
