Fabulous Photos of Yvonne Romain in the 1960s

Born 1938 in London, British actress Yvonne Romain appeared in children’s shows and repertory at the age of twelve. She started appearing in British films in her late teens. Her exotic, dark looks and 38-22-36 figure saw her often cast in supporting roles as Italian or Spanish maidens in war films and comedies.

Romain is probably best known for The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) where she starred with Oliver Reed in his first major role. And perhaps her biggest role was in another Hammer production, Captain Clegg (1962), aka Night Creatures (US title), playing alongside Peter Cushing and Oliver Reed again. She also appeared alongside Sean Connery twice, in Action of the Tiger (1957), and the gangster film The Frightened City (1961), where she shared equal billing with the pre-Bond star. Romain also co-starred in the Danger Man episode titled Sabotage in 1961, and in the 1964 mystery film Smokescreen alongside Peter Vaughan.

After a break from the screen, Romain emerged from semi-retirement as the title character in the Anthony Perkins/Stephen Sondheim-scripted mystery thriller The Last of Sheila (1973), her last screen role, she now being 37 years old.

Take a look at these fabulous photos to see the beauty of young Yvonne Romain in the 1960s.
