Actress. Born Bayla Wegier of French/Polish descent. At the age of twelve, she was sent to a concentration camp when the Germans invaded France. In 1952 she moved to Hollywood at Darryl Zanuck’s invitation, there she had her big screen debut as ‘Denise Montel’ in “Hell and High Water,” followed by the most remembered ‘Nefer’ in “The Egyptian.” Sadly she committed suicide, on the same day that Pier Angeli also took her own life. Her body was found one week later in her Monte Carlo apartment.
