Frequently called "fresh faced" during her ingenue period, and still sweet-smiled in middle age, Judy Geeson made her stage debut at age nine, and began appearing on British TV by age 12. Her screen debut as Pamela Dare, a thoughtful and awakening schoolgirl with a crush on Sidney Poitier's upright schoolteacher, in "To Sir With Love" (1967) brought her notice and acclaim. She went on to play provocative leads in a number of British and other films, including "Prudence and the Pill" (1968), "Brannigan" (1975), the thriller "Dominique" (1977) and "Horror Planet" (1980). She seemed to have a predilection for screen pregnancies: in "Prudence and the Pill", she played David Niven's sexually-active niece who finds herself with child while in "Horror Planet", she was impregnated by a monster and becomes a killer. Geeson spent much of the 80s concentrating on stage and film roles. She returned to features in 1991 to co-star in "Young Goodman Brown", based on a short story by Nathaniel Hawthorne, but it went unreleased for almost six years.
