Blonde actress best known for her star-making role as the troubled pianist who must cope with a suave tormenter (James Mason) in Compton Bennett's landmark romantic psychodrama, "The Seventh Veil" (1945). Todd's film career had begun almost 15 years earlier but, apart from roles as Ralph Richardson's mad wife in Victor Saville's "South Riding" (1938) and as Robert Donat's wartime flirtation in "Vacation from Marriage" (1945), consisted mostly of minor genre fare. She enjoyed considerable success on the British stage in the early 40s and returned to films after a four-year absence to claim her place as one of England's biggest postwar stars.
