Mini Bio (1)

Gorgeous and voluptuous blonde actress Linda Hayden made a strong and lasting impression with her steamy portrayals of lusty nymphets and tempting seductresses in a handful of pictures made in the 60s and 70s. Linda was born on January 19, 1953 in Stanmore, Middlesex, England. She studied her craft at the esteemed Aida Foster Stage School, where she took drama, dancing and singing classes. Hayden made a bold film debut as brassy 15-year-old teenage tart Luci Thompson in the racy melodrama Baby Love (1968). Linda achieved her greatest enduring cult cinema popularity with her appearances in several horror features; she was excellent as virginal innocent Alice Hargood in the typically fine Hammer outing Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970) and gave an outstanding performance as alluring devil cult leader Angel Blake in the chilling The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971). Hayden was likewise memorable as libidinous sexpot secretary Linda Hindstatt in the sleazy thriller Trauma (1976) and had a brief cameo in The Boys from Brazil (1978). She acted in four amusingly lowbrow comedies with her onetime boyfriend Robin Askwith: Confessions of a Window Cleaner (1974), Queen Kong (1976), Let's Get Laid (1978) and Confessions of a Summer Camp Councillor (1977).

Linda has made guest appearances in such TV shows as Now Look Here (1971), Marked Personal (1973), Crown Court: Traffic Warden's Daughter: Part 1 (1974), My Brother's Keeper: Pig in the Middle (1975), Robin's Nest (1977), Mackenzie: Sole Agent (1980), The Professionals: Black Out (1980), Shillingbury Tales (1980), Cuffy (1983), Hart to Hart: Passing Chance (1983), Fox Mystery Theater: Black Carrion (1984) and The Bill: Performance Anxiety (1997).

In addition to her movie and television credits, Hayden has also acted on stage: she co-starred with Askwith in the bawdy farce "Who Goes Bare" and has performed extensively in productions for the Theatre of Comedy Company.

Linda Hayden is married to theatre producer Paul Elliott and is the mother of two children.
