Actress Ingrid Pitt, dubbed Hammer Films’ “Queen of Horror”, has die,her daughter said. She was 73. The Polish-born star collapsed in London last week while on her way to an event hosted by members of her fan club. Her daughter Steffanie Pitt said she was “a fantastic woman”. Pitt was best known as a seductive screen siren in a string of British horror films including The Vampire Lovers and Countess Dracula. She also had a minor part in the 1973 cult classic The Wicker Man. Steffanie Pitt said: “She passed away this morning. It was heart trouble. She had a couple of bad years, health-wise, but she had fought through. Anyone who knew my mother would say she was incredibly feisty and determined to make a good fist of everything she wanted to do.” She will be remembered forever.
