Was forced to turn down the role of Elizabeth in Paint Your Wagon (1969) with Clint Eastwood, due to illness. Jean Seberg replaced her.

 

She was awarded the 1992 London Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Actress for her performance in "Medea.".

 

Society was so much more prudish in the 1960s. In one episode of The Avengers I played a belly dancer and I had to stick a jewel in my navel because the Americans wouldn`t tolerate them. In those days you didn`t flash the boobs at all. What you did do to look glamorous was jack the boobs up and probably wear something quite low-cut.

 

I think I was quite daring. I was once escorted out of a restaurant because I was wearing a trouser suit. It wasn`t considered good breeding for a woman to go around in trousers after 6pm, especially in smart restaurants and bars such as the Connaught hotel, which served the best cocktails.
