Veronica Carlson

Veronica Carlson starred in three Hammer horrors. She appeared as Maria opposite Christopher Lee's Dracula in Dracula Has Risen From the Grave in 1968, played Anna Spengler to Peter Cushing's Baron Frankenstein in 1969's Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed and then appeared with Ralph Bates' youthful Baron in The Horror of Frankenstein in 1970. She also appeared in Tyburn Films' The Ghoul, again with Peter Cushing.

Although Veronica was born in Yorkshire, her father was stationed in Germany for the early part of her life and she lived on an RAF base. After a spell living in Kenley (where, coincidentally, Peter Cushing was born) Veronica attended High Wycombe College of Technology and Design, where she studied art. She now lives in Florida with her husband and three children and is a professional artist.

Veronica Carlson is, without a doubt, my all time favourite Hammer actress. I first saw her in Dracula Has Risen From The Grave, and became an instant fan. As well as being a very beautiful lady, she is also a very fine actress too. Oh, and she happens to be quite a consummate portrait painter too!
