Actress. Known as "The Countess of Cleavage" or "The Queen of the Premieres," names which were given to her due to her habit of appearing at film premieres in revealing dresses. During the 1960s and early 1970s, she was an international B-movie starlet and starred in "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth" (1969), "Incense for the Damned" (1970) and "Carry On Loving" (1970). She was famed for her celebrity appearances rather than for her acting skills, and was often a favorite object for the British tabloid newspapers. In later years her acting work began to ebb away and she worked in a London bar. She was found dead of an Tuinal overdose by a friend at her Wimbledon home, and her death was ruled a suicide.
