A talented blonde beauty with a sly, seductive smile, Diane Cilento (pronounced CHILL-en-to) was born in Brisbane, Australia to Sir Raphael and Lady Phyllis Cilento, both physicians. She went on to have a successful stage career, notably as Helen of Troy in 1955's Broadway production of "Tiger at the Gates," but appeared in few substantial films. Her most memorable movie performances included the enticing Molly in "Tom Jones" (1963) which won her a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination, and the harlot with a heart of gold in "Rattle of a Simple Man" (1964). Cilento turned to writing in the late 1960s, publishing her first novel, The Manipulator, in 1967. After working in England as a stage director in the 1970s, she moved back to her native Australia in the '80s, where she has appeared in an occasional film role, but devoted most of her attention to the Karnak Theater Company, an open-air venue in Queensland. The talented actress - who was married to Sean Connery from 1962 to 1973 and who bore him a son - passed away at age 78 on Oct. 7, 2011 in Northern Australia.

QUOTES FROM Diane Cilento CHARACTERS

Audra Favor says: Jessie: And we got him a marble headstone. It had his name on it, and underneath, we had them put, "In the Fullness of His Years." Is that all right with you? John Russell: I'll settle for that. I'm not on the slab. Jessie: Well, what do you figure yours is going to read? John Russell: "Shot Dead," probably. Jessie: Don't people take to you, Mr. Russell? John Russell: It only takes one who doesn't.
