Actress
    (November 12, 1943- )
    Born in Hampstead, London, England, United Kingdom
    Appeared in the films ‘The Rise and Rise of Michael Rimmer,’ ‘Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb’ (dual role), ‘No Sex, Please, We’re British,’ ‘Queen Kong,’ ‘The Spy Who Loved Me,’ ‘Revenge of the Pink Panther,’ ‘Never Say Never Again,’ and ‘Golden Years (2016)’
    TV guest appearances include The Saint, The Avengers, The Persuaders, Space: 1999, and Randall and Hopkirk Deceased
    Alias the Hai Karate woman (tall, buxom, fueled by the smell of the aftershave used by some puny geekish guy)
    5 ft 11 in
    Like her three younger siblings, she was privately educated.
    While training as a buyer at Harrods, she skipped out for an audition.
    Among her uncredited film parts were the hotel receptionist in ‘The Italian Job’ and an early film in the ‘Carry On’ collection.
    With ‘Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb’ being a notable exception, she was rarely in a leading role.
    She had a straightforward but none too subtle license plate on her (since auctioned!) car: ‘VL1.’
    Even in her heyday she wasn’t cast exclusively to be a sexpot.
    She was a rabid autograph collector.
    The skipped audition led to a part as a chorus girl and then alongside Barbra Streisand in a stage production of ‘Funny Girl.’
    Yes, she had the distinction of appearing in two James Bond movies with two different portrayers (though the latter was considered unofficial).
    She had two children by her only marriage (her husband died in 1988, nine days before their 14th anniversary).
    It mattered little to her in the long run that she never achieved a Jennifer Lawrence level of celebrity.
