Inger Stevens ( October 18, 1934 – April 30, 1970), born Inger Stensland, in Stockholm, Sweden. Stevens was an insecure and often ill child. Her parents divorced while living in Sweden and she moved with her father to the United States. At 16, she left home and started to work in New York City as a showgirl in low-budget performances. She appeared in commercials, plays and TV until she finally got her big chance in the movie Man on Fire, with Bing Crosby. She had the greatest success with her leading role in the television series The Farmer's Daughter. Ironically in both her roles in The Twilight Zone she portrays protagonists who believe they are living women but discover they aren't alive after all: in one she has died in a car accident, but doesn't realize it; in the other, she is a robot programmed to believe she is human. The best known of her movie roles were Hang 'Em High with Clint Eastwood, 5 Card Stud with Dean Martin and Madigan with Henry Fonda and Richard Widmark, all in 1968. Stevens was attempting to make a comeback on TV in 1970 with the detective drama series The Most Deadly Game when she died. Miss Stevens, although attractive, seemingly pleasant and successful, was an unhappy woman. In 1970, she committed suicide in Los Angeles, California with an overdose of barbiturates.
