35 Fabulous Photos of Suzy Kendall in the 1960s and Early ’70s

Born 1937 as Freda Harriet Harrison in Belper, Derbyshire, British actress Suzy Kendall was a fabric designer at British Celanese and then became a photographic model before becoming an actress. She initially appeared in supporting roles before progressing to female leads in a number of British films in the late 1960s. In the early 1970s, she appeared in several Italian Giallo thrillers before returning to Britain and played supporting roles in a few more films until her retirement from screen acting in 1977.

In 2012, Kendall made her first film appearance in 35 years in Berberian Sound Studio, billed in some sources as the mother of the lead character Gilderoy, played by Toby Jones, though the end credits on the film list her as “special guest screamer”. The film is about a sound engineer working on an Italian horror film, which alludes to several appearances Kendall made in Italian genre films during the 1970s.

Kendall now lives in London with her second husband Sandy Harper. Their daughter Elodie Harper is a journalist (at ITV Anglia) and novelist. Take a look at these fabulous photos to see portraits of young in the 1960s and early 1970s.
