I’m really saddened about the loss of Hammer Horror actress Ingrid Pitt who has died today at the age of 73.
The Hammer Horror films she starred in, Countess Dracula, The Vampire Lovers are among my all-time favourites and I was lucky enough once to interview Ingrid a few years ago for a vampire site that I used to run. I emailed Ingrid and asked if she would agree to be interviewed via email and I didn’t expect the response I got.
She talked in-depth about Countess Dracula, her trip to Romania and of course Hammer Horror and she had a lovely warm sense of humour.
She even signed the photograph pictured here and I have it together with a signed copy of the script for Countess Dracula.
We should never forget Ingrid! She’s a true star and was a worthy ambassador of Hammer Horror.
