Rebecca Louise Front (born 16 May 1964) is a BAFTA award–winning English comedy actress and occasional writer best known for her performances in The Thick of It, and series of satirical comedies in the early 1990s: On The Hour, The Day Today and Knowing Me, Knowing You…with Alan Partridge. During the early 2000s, her career continued across a range of comedy genres with prominent roles in animation Monkey Dust, Time Gentlemen Please, Nighty Night, and sketch show Big Train.

Her brother is writer and comic actor Jeremy Front and the two siblings have collaborated on writing and performance projects – the most recent is a series of spoof documentaries entitled Incredible Women for Radio 4. Front's book Curious: True Stories and Loose Connections (published 2014) is a collection of autobiographical stories.

When he goes to school, Henry arranges for a forged note to be made, this and the lack of homework lands him in detention. Later, Miss Oddbod, the headteacher, tells Henry's class that the school inspectors are coming, and they don't want any 'unpleasantness'.

Colour Me Kubrick begins with a direct homage to A Clockwork Orange with the after-effects of one of Alan Conway's (Malkovich) minor cons: two thugs are sent to collect a bar bill that Conway has generated by impersonating Kubrick. Conway has provided the address of an elderly couple as Kubrick's home address. Conway is nowhere to be seen, and the thugs are arrested by the police for causing a ruckus outside the house.
