Mini Bio (1)
Her only real claim to celluloid immortality is playing the topless safecracking spy in a segment of Antony Balch's sex and horror portmanteau film Bizarre (1970). Maria's character 'Lindy Leigh-Agent 28' who's always ready to 'put her sex appeal to patriotic purpose' was the creation of Alfred Mazure, a multi-talented writer/cartoonist who due to a deal with a Colonel Parker type publisher lived and died largely penniless.
Maria was under no delusions about her acting ability and reportedly turned pale when she discovered the extent of her role, telling director Balch 'I'm a model, I can't act'. Asked about Frost in later years Balch remembered 'we got a naïve kind of acting and personality that captured the essence of Lindy Leigh'.
Maria's career as an actress ended with her playing a sexy export to the Swiss Alps shot softcore farce 'Charley's Tante Nackt' released in the UK as 'The Sexy Dozen', thereafter she appears to have left showbiz.
