The oldest and youngest actors in Blake's 7
Endless Midnight
I was trying to work out who were the earliest and latest born actors to appear in Blake's 7 on television, at least in credited roles.

I think that the former may be Freda Jackson, born 1907, who played Tara in the Keeper, and it may well be Josette Simon, born 1960, as the latter. I don't know of anyone born after 1960 who ever appeared in it, unless anyone else can think of anyone.

Valentine Dyall, born 1908, Robert Beatty and Denis Carey, both born 1909, and Richard Hurndall, born 1910, are all runners-up for the former too.
Youngest would probably be Sasha Mitchell, who played Arlen in Blake. I think she was all of 16 or 17 during filming.
There was a young man
From Cork who got Limericks
And Haikus confused.

Thanks, wasn't aware of Sasha Mitchell's age.

I could also have added Sylvia Coleridge, also born 1909, to the people whom I mentioned earlier.
Who is the oldest surviving actor who appeared in the show? John Savident or Brian Blessed perhaps?
Brian Blessed is the oldest surviving actor who appeared in B7.

I think she said 16 or 17 at Cygnus Alpha, but then said at CA4 she celebrated her birthday on set and that she was born in 1962 - which means she was 18 turning 19 during the filming of the final episode.

Given that not one episode of B7 features children, there's still a chance she's the youngest credited cast member, just edging out Josette Simon. Yolande Palfrey (Veron) was in her very early twenties.
