Suzzanna Martha Frederika van Osch (October 13, 1942 in Bogor – October 15, 2008 in Magelang[1]), better known as Suzzanna, was an Indonesian actress of Indo-European (Eurasian) descent. Known as the "horror queen of Indonesian cinema", she is well known in particular in Indonesia for portraying the mythical ghost prostitute Sundel Bolong in the 1981/2 film Sundelbolong.

Biography[edit]

Suzzanna, who had Javanese-Manado-German-Dutch heritage, started out as a child actress and later became one of the biggest stars of Indonesian horror cinema. She was awarded the Best Child Actress Award at the 1960 Asian Film Festival and was crowned as Asia's most popular actress at the 1972 Asia-Pacific Film Festival in Seoul.[2]

Indonesians knew her as The Indonesian Horror Queen,[citation needed] not only because of her acting but also because of her mystic lifestyle.[citation needed] Some people said that she looked young in her old age because she ate jasmine flowers.[citation needed]

She was married to actor Dicky Suprapto. After their separation (never divorced as their marriage was a Catholic marriage), she lived together with actor Clift Sangra. Her daughter from her marriage with Dicky Suprapto, Kiki Maria, is also an actress. She retired from films in the 1990s but made a comeback in Hantu Ambulance, 2008. However, it would be her final appearance.

She died on October 15, 2008, at 66 years of age, after 30 years of fighting with diabetes.[3]
