Ingrid Pitt

Ingrid Pitt

A mad keen cricket supporter despite her non-British childhood and loves nothing more than beating Australian fans who wager against her team when The Ashes take place.

An avid fan of Coronation Street.

Shares a birthday with Björk, Goldie Hawn, Rachel Rogers, Nicollette Sheridan, and Juliet Mills.

She grew up in East Berlin, escaped to the West and married the man who helped her escape.

She has a daughter, Steffanie Pitt.

She lived in a Nazi concentration camp for three years, surviving the Holocaust.

While filming The Vampire Lovers (1970), Ingrid and the rest of the girls had a lot of trouble getting through scenes without giggling. In the scene where Ingrid has to drink from Kate O'Mara, her vampire teeth kept falling out and into Kate's cleavage. She eventually had to steal some gum from one of the stagehands to stick the fang back in.
