Ingrid Pitt

Actor
b. 1937

The Polish-born beauty Ingrid Pitt is one of a handful of actors whose names are virtually synonymous with Hammer Horror. In fact, she made only two Hammer films, as well as a few notable genre films such The House That Dripped Blood (Amicus, 1971) and The Wicker Man (1973, in a fleeting cameo).

Her first Hammer role was as the vampire Carmilla in The Vampire Lovers (1970), a role for which she gladly stripped off and met the demands of the movie-going public's growing appetite for sex (and lesbian sex, at that). Her second and final Hammer film later that same year was in the title role of Countess Dracula, the less satisfying of the two films, despite Pitt's sensual performance.
