Lovely copper-haired actress in British films, often as high-class bad girls, but making her debut with a small role in Caesar and Cleopatra (1945). With her small, upper-class tones, she did not quite make 'A' list stardom, but became instead a prolific staple in leading roles of post-war British 'B' crime movies, notably Meet Simon Cherry (1949), Blind Man's Bluff (1951), Deadly Nightshade (1953) and The Scarlet Web (1954). She returned to her native Kenya to play a missionary doctor in Men Against the Sun (1953). The highlight of her later career came playing James Bond villainess Miss Taro in Dr No (1962). Her last theatrical film was The Terrornauts in 1967. She was to married film producer Ivan Foxwell until his death in 2002. She died from cancer.
