Susannah was a gamin, blue-eyed, cropped blonde British actress of the early 1960s.

She made a first impression on TV in 1959 opposite Sean Connery in a production of The Crucible. She made her film debut as the daughter of Alec Guinness in the war drama Tunes of Glory.

But she was perhaps best known as a lovely damsel in the bawdy and robust 18th century film Tom Jones, starring Albert Finney.

She went on to co-star in films with the likes of Warren Beatty and Newick-raised Dirk Bogarde.
