Though she actually didn’t make that many horror movies (and they weren’t all Hammer), she was not someone any viewer was likely to forget. She also did a wonderful job keeping her legacy alive, becoming a convention regular, operating her own website, writing articles for other sites and magazines, and always staying in character.
Her back story, by the way, is one of the most interesting I’ve ever run across. As a child, she actually spent three years in a Nazi concentration camp. And as a teen, she escaped from East Germany by diving in a river, swimming across, and marrying the U.S. soldier who rescued her.
