A doe-eyed, honey-blond actress of extraordinary beauty, Suzy Kendall was one of the most popular British actresses of the 1960s. Yet, she never really sought the spotlight and accepted fame only reluctantly. She began to receive film offers and, while not trained as an actress, was persuaded by her agents to accept film and television roles. While she had many film roles early in her career, some of her main features were Dario Argento’s The Bird with the Crystal Plumage (1970) and 1973’s Torso.
