Barbara Shelley

Birthday: Aug 15, 1933
Birthplace: London, England, UK
After working as a model in her native London, brunette leading lady Barbara Shelley began her filmmaking activities in Italy in 1953. Though exuding such qualities as class and intelligence, Shelley's film career was by and large limited to screaming and cringing in an endless stream of horror films. Her better-known credits within this genre include The Cat Girl, Blood of the Vampire, Shadow of the Cat, Village of the Damned, The Gorgon, Rasputin the Mad Monk, Dracula Prince of Darkness, 5,000,000 Years to Earth, and her last theatrical feature, Ghost Story (1974). On television, Barbara Shelley has been seen in worthwhile character roles in such productions as the 1979 miniseries Pride and Prejudice (as Mrs. Gardiner) and the 1989 British TV movie Maigret.
