Blonde British actress, born in Chile, who, after stage experience and a modest career in British films, went to Hollywood where she was nicknamed "Queen of the Horrors" and "The Screamer" because of the numerous "B" horror and action movies in which she starred during the 1940s, mostly at Universal. Ankers' best-remembered film is probably "The Wolf Man" (1941), which confirmed Lon Chaney Jr.'s status as a horror star. Married to actor Richard Denning in 1942, she virtually retired from film in 1950 and moved with her husband to Hawaii in 1968.
