30 Beautiful Photos of Olivia Hussey in the 1960s and ’70s

Born 1951 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Olivia Hussey moved with her mother and younger brother to London. At 13, she began acting professionally on the stage.

After appearing in theatre in London, Hussey was chosen to play the role of Juliet in Franco Zeffirelli’s film version of Romeo and Juliet (1968). She won a Golden Globe and the David di Donatello Award for her performance, and gained international recognition.

In 1974, Hussey appeared as the lead character, Jess Bradford, in the cult slasher film Black Christmas. This role, along with her subsequent horror films, earned her the title of scream queen. She reunited with Zeffirelli in the miniseries Jesus of Nazareth (1977), as Mary, and appeared in John Guillermin’s Agatha Christie adaptation Death on the Nile (1978).

Hussey also appeared in several international productions throughout the 1980s, including the Japanese production Virus (1980), and the Australian horror film Turkey Shoot (1982). She appeared in two made-for-television horror productions: Psycho IV: The Beginning and Stephen King’s It, both first screened in 1990.

In addition to screen acting, Hussey has worked as a voice actress, providing voice roles in multiple Star Wars video games, including Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, Star Wars: Force Commander, and Star Wars: The Old Republic.

  2. Yeah, the guy who runs this site tried to. But his English is so bad what he actually ended up saying is "I want to put amazing poo on your head."

  3. She is beautiful. There is nothing wrong with her hair.

    1. She was a young woman with beauty that few women have and "there was nothing wrong with that woman's hair!!!"

  4. Yeah, that was just the style back then--more natural hair worn long and loose with a middle part. That doesn't mean she didn't wash it! Sheesh! She looks angelic, and her hair does, too.
