Ingrid Pitt
Birth: Nov. 21, 1937
Warsaw
Mazowieckie, Poland
Death: Nov. 23, 2010
London
Greater London, England

Actress. Born Ingoushka Petrov in Poland to a German father and a Polish-Jewish mother, she endured the horrors of imprisonment in a concentration camp during World War II, while a young child. After surviving the ordeal, she began her acting career in Germany, as a member of the famed "Berliner Ensemble"; she was mentored by Helene Weigel-Brecht. Opposed to East Germany's post war communistic philosophy, Pitt fled to the US for a period before returning to Europe; she launched her film career in the Spanish horror picture "Sound of Horror" (1964). This was followed with uncredited parts in the films "Doctor Zhivago" (1965) and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" (1966); she had a memorable supporting role in the action-packed "Where Eagles Dare" (1968). Pitt experienced her breakthrough role, when she was cast as the seductive female vampire in the British Hammer Film Productions' cult classic "The Vampire Lovers" (1970); she would find her niche, appearing in memorable parts (usually of sensual nature) in several horror films of the 1970s, including "Countess Dracula" (1971), "The House That Dripped Blood" (1971) and "The Wicker Man" (1973). She was known to TV audiences for her recurring roles in the popular series "Doctor Who"; she became an accomplished author later in life. (bio by: C.S.)
