An evening with Caroline Munro announced for this July
What: An evening with Caroline Munro
Date: Saturday 26th July
Location: The Blakehay Theatre, Weston-super-Mare
Born in January 1949, Caroline Munro grew up in Rottingdean near Brighton, and lead a comparatively sheltered life, attending a Catholic Convent School. However, by age 16 Munro had her mother submitting snaps of her daughter to the Evening Standard's "Face of the Year" competition. The high profile competition was to be judged by photographer David Bailey. Caroline was startled to have won this competition and the newfound fame lead her to a number of modelling offers.
Munro was head-hunted for a bit-part in the 1960s James Bond spoof "Casino Royale", wherein she appeared as a voluptuous Guard Girl. The same year, '66, Caroline was an extra on the set of the short film "G.G. Passion" and the little-remembered feature "Smoke Over London".
Fans will most readily recall her Hammer era, commencing when she appeared in "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" (1971) as a bit-part to Vincent Price's Dr. Anton Phibes. She appeared in the sequel the following year and is remembered for playing Laura Bellows in "Dracula A.D." (1972).
