Caroline Munro

Caroline started her career as a model and was soon chosen for parts in movies like Casino Royale (1967) and Where’s Jack (1969).

She was then Regina Phibes wife of Dr Phibes in The Abominable Dr Phibes (1971) and its sequel, Dr Phibes Rises Again (1972).

Caroline was then chosen as the face of Lamb’s Navy Rum and it was this that alerted Hammer Films to cast her in Dracula AD 1972 (1972). This was the point she knew she wanted to be an actor and she then acted in Captain Kronos – Vampire Hunter (1974).

She has the distinction of being the only actor ever signed to a long-term contract by Hammer Films.

Caroline was cast in the role of Margiana, the slave girl in The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973). Other appearances during this time included I Don’t Want to Be Born (1975) with Joan Collins, and At the Earth’s Core (1976) with Peter Cushing and Doug McClure.

In 1977, Munro turned down the opportunity to play villainess Ursa in Superman in favour of Bond girl Naomi in The Spy Who Loved Me alongside Roger Moore.

Other films worked on include Starcrash (1978), The Last Horror Film (1982), Don’t Open Till Christmas (1984), Slaughter High (1986), Howl of the Devil (1987) and Faceless (1988).

 In the early 1980s, she appeared in music videos for Adam Ant’s “Goody Two Shoes” (1982) and Meat Loaf’s “If You Really Want To” (1983).

In September 2021, Munro started presenting Talking Pictures TV’s new, exclusive series The Cellar Club. In the series, Caroline introduces celebrated and obscure horror films from her Cellar Club and gives her personal, insider perspective.
