Lust for a vampire
Sophisticated, elegant, charismatic, and beautiful, Judy Matheson is one of Hammers most iconic and talented ladies. With a wide range of projects ranging from film and television, there are few actresses from the 1970s as gifted as her.
Judith C. Matheson was born in Thurrock, Essex, England. She began her career near the end of the swinging sixties after drama school. She first worked for Bristol Old Vic Theatre Company for which she toured the United States. This also included an impressive season on Broadway. This was proceeded with her appearances in three prestigious Shakespeare productions, with the most prominent being Sir Tyrone Guthrie's production of Measure for Measure.
She got her big break starring alongside a culturally diverse cast in the horror art house film The Exquisite Cadaver (1969). Her bold and groundbreaking performance skyrocketed her career, and soon she became a big hit among the horror film scene in Great Britain (particularly for Hammer). She made memorable appearances in a string of horror films such as Twins of Evil (1971), Lust for a Vampire (1971), Crucible of Terror (1971), The Flesh and Blood Show (1972), and more. She also made several appearances on televisions shows throughout the 70s; including Blake's 7 (1978), Crossroads: Episode 1.2818 (1977), Harriet's Back in Town (1972), and more
