Early life and education[edit]

Born Sandra Eileen Anne Smith on 26 July 1945, Leigh grew up in Berkshire, England,[4] and later went to convent schools outside London. She began working in films while still a pre-teen, appearing as an extra in several British productions. She changed her name to Suzanna Leigh just after entering film and whilst under the tutelage of her godmother, Vivien Leigh.


Leigh's film roles include the love interest of Elvis Presley in Paradise, Hawaiian Style (1966), a stewardess in the comedy Boeing Boeing (1965), and as the frail heroine in a couple of Hammer films - The Lost Continent (1968) and Lust for a Vampire (1971).[5] She starred in the cult British horror films The Deadly Bees (1966) and The Fiend (1972). In 1974 she starred as Amber in Son of Dracula.[5] In 2015, she was a featured player in the film Grace of the Father.[5]
