Abigail McKern, daughter of actor Leo, recalls spending time with Beatles

Now 63, Abigail McKern shares memories of her experiences around the Beatles when her father Leo, worked with them on the film, "Help!," in 1965.

“I remember my father speaking to me and saying, ‘Don’t pester them, they are pestered by millions and millions of people wanting them and screaming at them, so just give them some space and respect and if you’re very good at the end of the filming, then I will ask them if they could do a signed photo’.”

“They were always really nice. Ringo was so sweet, I used to go tobogganing with him in the snow in Austria,” she recalled.
“John Lennon had only just had his son Julian Lennon at the time and he was missing him. My sister was six-months-old and he always used to say, ‘Can I hold Harriet on my lap?’ so he could cuddle her!”
