A slender, petite (5'2"), lissome player, more recently in character roles, who has appeared in international films, Olivia Hussey is still perhaps best remembered as one of the rare Juliets to play the role while actually a teenager in Franco Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" (1968). The Buenos Aires-born, London-raised actress subsequently appeared on a regular if not prolific basis in a wide variety of international productions, ranging from enjoyable all-star affairs in which she was outshone by more flamboyant performers ("Death on the Nile" 1978; "The Cat and the Canary" 1979) to major flops ("Lost Horizon" 1973) to a number of fairly obscure credits of at best modest merit ("Distortions" 1987; the direct-to-video erotic thriller "Save Me" 1994). Hussey has also appeared, demure and attractive, on TV with some regularity in guest spots, TV-movies and miniseries; reunited with Zeffirelli, for instance, she brought the appropriate gentility to the role of the Virgin Mary in the miniseries "Jesus of Nazareth" (1977).
