How it all started
Sir David Jason Discovers 52-Year-Old Daughter from Brief Relationship with Actress Jennifer Hill
Sir David Jason and actress Jennifer Hill crossed paths while starring in the play Under Milk Wood in London at the start of 1970. Their relationship resulted in the birth of Abi that same year. Despite having worked together several times since, Sir David had no idea of his biological connection to Abi.
Abi grew up believing that her biological father was Geoffrey Davion, Jennifer’s husband at the time, until his death in 1996. It was not until years later, during a reprisal of Under Milk Wood in 2008, that Abi and Sir David were reunited. Following conversations with her mother and noticing similarities in their looks, Abi began to suspect the truth about her heritage and eventually wrote to Sir David to confirm it through a paternity test.
Speaking to The Mirror, Abi shared her mixed emotions about the discovery and the years they lost. However, she expressed hope for a meaningful father-daughter relationship moving forward and her eagerness to be the best big sister she can be to Sir David’s daughter, Sophie.
