Willowy blonde British actress Suzy Kendall studied for a career in clothing design at Derby College. After briefly laboring in the English fashion industry as both designer and model, she was cast in the 1966 spy thriller The Liquidator. The next year, she gained international renown for her role in To Sir With Love (1967) and the semi-willing victim of a gang of S&M freaks in The Penthouse (1967). Kendall then settled into roles in a series of indifferent English and European productions, remaining in this artistic rut into the late 1980s. Suzy Kendall was one of several high-profile wives of comic actor Dudley Moore.
