biography

Born in England on January 16, 1949, beautiful scream queen Caroline Munro started a modeling career as a teenager in the mid 1960s. The leggy, brown-eyed brunette quickly found work as an extra in such films as Casino Royale (1967; with Peter Sellers and David Niven) and Joanna (1968; with Donald Sutherland). Munro's modeling career flourished during the latter half of the 1960s, but her acting career didn't really get off the ground until the early 1970s. After appearing uncredited in The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971; with Vincent Price and Joseph Cotten) and its sequel Dr. Phibes Rises Again (1972; with with Vincent Price) as Phibes' wife Victoria, Munro signed a contract with Hammer Films, Britain's premier horror film studio.

At Hammer, Munro acted in the films Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972; with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing) and Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter (1973; with Horst Janson and Ian Hendry). Upon leaving Hammer, she starred in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1974; with John Phillip Law) but otherwise stayed with the horror and science fiction genres in such films as I Don't Want to Be Born (1975; with Joan Collins and Donald Pleasence), At the Earth's Core (1976; with Doug McClure and Peter Cushing), and Starcrash (1979; with Marjoe Gortner and David Hasselhoff). However, audiences likely remember Munro best as Bond babe Naomi in The Spy Who Loved Me (1977; with Roger Moore and Barbara Bach).
