Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This pretty British actress got her start being menaced and looking attractively frightened in low-budget horror films. She was first seen as a busty serving girl in Roman Polanski's ambitious "The Fearless Vampire Killers" (1967), then went on to lend an unwonted grace to such blood-soaked fare as "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" (1972), and "Blue Blood" (1973).It wasn't all blood and guts, however. Lewis had a supporting role in the slapstick spy comedy "Otley" (1969), played a highwayman's wench in "Where's Jack?" (also 1969), was Ian McShane's girlfriend in the Richard Burton vehicle "Villain" (1971) and dallied with Liszt in Ken Russell's bizarre, over-the-top "Lisztomania" (1975).Dismayed by the way her career was going in England, Lewis ventured to the US. She appeared in the Dino De Laurentiis potboiler "Drum" (1976), played a journalist in "Stunts" (1977), and had a few good moments in Brian De Palma's "The Fury" (1978), as a sexy government agent who comes to a very unhappy end. She showed up in the unsuccessful Western "Wanda Nevada" (1979), was a deliciously evil nurse in the Australian "Strange Behavior/Dead Kids" (1979), had a nice bit as an alien in "Strange Invaders" (1983) and played a...

It wasn't all blood and guts, however. Lewis had a supporting role in the slapstick spy comedy "Otley" (1969), played a highwayman's wench in "Where's Jack?" (also 1969), was Ian McShane's girlfriend in the Richard Burton vehicle "Villain" (1971) and dallied with Liszt in Ken Russell's bizarre, over-the-top "Lisztomania" (1975).

Although Lewis has been seen on British TV (and was made sport of on "Monty Python's Flying Circus"), her lone American appearance was as Lucy in the CBS version of "Dracula" (1974). Between film roles, Lewis has scripted a number of screenplays, worked as a journalist and has had her artwork exhibited.
