Never auditioned for the movie The Ten Commandments (1956). The part of Lilia was the last of the lead roles to cast. Cecil B. DeMille instinctively asked her one day to report to Paramount to start work. He had followed her career and felt that "the hand of God" was on her.

She took her screen name from Lord and Lady Paget of England, UK, from whom her family are descended.

Sister of Teala Loring, Lisa Gaye and Frank Griffin.

Tested for the lead role in the 1955 TV series, "Sheena: Queen of the Jungle" (1955).

Third husband Louis C. Kung was a Chinese-American oil company executive and a nephew of Madame Chiang.

Was originally going to star with Robert Wagner and Victor Mature in The Proud Ones (1956).
