Patricia Ann Ruth "Trisha" Noble (born February 3, 1944) is an Australian singer and actress.


Noble was born in Sydney, Australia. Her father was comedian and singer Buster Noble and her mother was the entertainer Helen De Paul.

Noble rose to fame as a teenage singing star in the 1960s under the name Patsy Ann Noble. Her singing career was founded by Brian Henderson, the compere of the Australian version of "Bandstand", where she made many appearances. She was signed to the Australian HMV label where she released her first single "Like I'm In Love" b/w "I Love You So Much It Hurts" in 1960.

She became good friends with a young Peter Allen, who had formed the successful Allen Brothers with Chris Bell, and released one of his compositions "Busy Lips" late 1960. It wasn't, however, until Johnny Devlin, a New Zealand singer/songwriter of that era, handed her the lyrics of "Good Looking Boy" in 1961 that she had her first No. 1 hit. "Good Looking Boy" was on top of the charts all over Australia, but did not chart internationally. It was released in the United Kingdom, but didn't dent the Top 100.

Noble won the "Best Female Singer of The Year" award in Australia in late 1961. By December 1962, Patsy had scored herself two No. 1 and four Top 10 singles in Australia. With this success, she travelled to London in 1963 where she was given a two-year contract with Columbia Records. In London, she released many "girl group"-sounding pop songs including "Sour Grapes" (1963), "I'm Nobody's Baby" (1963) and "Accidents Will Happen" (1963), but received little commercial success (although she continued to score hits between 1963 and 1965 in her native country, Australia.) In 1963 she appeared in the British musical film "Live it Up" (with music produced by Joe Meek), although only in a singing role.

In June 1965, Noble released "He Who Rides a Tiger" which peaked at No. 21 on the British Top 30, and No. 15 on Australia's Top 40. This was to be her last successful single.

During the 1960s, she released six albums in Australia and one in England, the most popular being 1961's "The Blonde Bombshell" which received an award for most outstanding vocal performance on an album.

In the second half of the 1960s, Noble turned to acting and made her dramatic acting debut in a 1965 BBC television production entitled "The Snowball" and soon found herself appearing on other television shows and movies, most notably the 1966 "Danger Man" episode "Not So Jolly Roger" (in which her recording "He Who Rides a Tiger" was featured), "Callan" and "Carry On Camping".

After 1967, Noble had changed her name to Trisha Noble in order to distance herself from her fame as a teen singer. She relocated to the United States beginning in 1971 and appeared in many films and TV series there, and is well remembered for her role as buxom Rosie Johnson in the ultra-violent series "Strike Force" on ABC in 1981-82 . She is also widely recognized from her guest-starring role in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century as Sabrina, a superhuman thief from the episode "Cruise Ship to the Stars"; as well as for a 1976 guest appearance on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" where she played a female reporter who tries to seduce Ted Baxter (Ted Knight) during a convention in the episode "Ted's Temptation." In 1975, she appeared in the Colombo Series in Episode Playback where she meets the murderer played by oskar werner in an art gallery wearing a sexy dress showing massive clevage. She was casted by the director who spotted her in a party wearing the same dress and was impressed by her immense sex appeal.

Soon after "Strike Force" was cancelled, Noble returned to Australia in 1983 with her son Patrick because her father was seriously ill. She then re-established a successful career there as a stage actress. She later filmed a small role as Padmé Amidala's mother in ' which was cut from the final film (but included on the DVD release). Noble briefly reprised the role in ' in 2005.

She also continues to perform on the live stage and most recently appeared with the new National Music Theatre Company, Kookaburra, in their premiere season of "Pippin" as Berthe at the Sydney Theatre.
