RIP Countess Dracula

Hammer actress Ingrid Pitt has died.

This makes me very sad as I love old Hammer films and I almost met her once at one of her many memorabilia fair appearances about 17 (!) years ago, but I was too chicken as she was very prim and I wasn't that familiar with her work at the time (plus I seem to get very starstuck, even with extremely minor personalities). I did feel a bit sorry for her being completely ignored in a corner of Watford Leisure Centre.

Rest in Peace, Ingrid. No rising from the dead okay?
