Jean Vivra Gray, known professionally as Vivean Gray, was an Australian television and film actress. In 1986, Gray was cast in the role of Nell Mangel, better known as Mrs Mangel, for three weeks in the soap opera Neighbours. However, the character proved so popular that she remained on the show until 1988, appearing in 292 episodes. The character was known for her constant feuding with Madge Bishop and for vying for
the affections of Harold Bishop. Gray left the role after receiving abuse from fans who disliked the character. As such, this was Gray's last acting role and she retired in 1988, moving to Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, where she lived a quiet and private life. Gray sadly
passed away at the age of 92 on 29 July 2016.
