#14 Valerie Leon

An extremely buxom, raven-haired temptress, Valerie Leon was a staple of British film and TV. She was a Bond girl (twice) and a Hammer scream queen, and also did a considerable amount of Brit TV. She operated primarily in comedies, especially of the standard, wink-wink-nudge-nudge British variety.

Valerie is still very active – on the convention circuit, acting, and doing a one-woman show about her life and career. And she still looks absolutely stunning. Shockingly, though, she is now a blonde!

Embarrassing Movies
  • Can I Keep It Up for a Week (wink, wink)
  • The Ups and Downs of a Handyman (nudge, nudge)
  • Queen Kong
  • Pitfire from Hell
  • Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb

Embarrassing Taglines
  • Stripped for Laughter! 
  • It's Sexcitement in Time and Space
  • A severed hand beckons from an open grave!

Embarrassing Characters
  • Margaret Fuchs
  • Atropos
  • Queen Tera
  • Space Queen
  • Queen of the Nabongas
  • Leda, Leader of the Lubbie Dubbies

Interesting Tidbits
  • Was a buyer for Harrods before acting
  • Her acting debut was as a chorus girl in Barbara Streisand’s Funny Girl
  • Was the Hai Karate girl
  • Was in 7 Carry On flicks
  • Played a dominatrix in The Revenge of the Pink Panther
  • Was the inspiration for Roxy Music's Beauty Queen (and, supposedly, Bryan Ferry's lover)
  • Is 6' 0"

Where can I learn more?

Nice hat!
