Susan Denberg is the stage name for Dietlinde Zechner (born on 2 August 1944, a German-born Austrian chorus dancer and 1966 Playboy Playmate, who made a brief brush with an acting career in the late 1960s. In addition, she did stage and dancing in London and Las Vegas. One of her few acting roles was that of "Magda Kovacs" in the Star Trek (1966) episode, "Mudd's Women" (1966).
Denberg's most famous acting role, outside of Star Trek (1966), was in Hammer Film's cult 1967 science fiction/horror film, Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), opposite Peter Cushing. However, Denberg's voice in the film was dubbed, as her Austrian accent was considered too strong.
After "Frankenstein Created Woman", Denberg returned to Austria. Over the years, rumors surfaced that she had died of a drug overdose in 1967 or that she had become mentally unstable as a result of using the drug LSD. In actuality, Denberg is currently (as of 24 Oct 2012) alive and well, and is living in Klagenfurt, Austria, under her real name, Dietlinde Zechner.
