British horror film star Hazel Court has died. She was 82.

The actress died after suffering a heart attack at her home near Lake Tahoe, California on Tuesday.

Court was famed for her roles in The Raven, The Premature Burial, The Masque of the Red Death, The Curse of Frankenstein and Devil Girl From Mars.

Born in the U.K. in 1926, the star set up home in the U.S. in the 1950s to work on revered director Alfred Hitchcock's TV show.

Paying tribute to her mother, Sally Walsh says, "She was one of the great beauties of all time. She was a redhead with really green eyes and almost... the perfect face. She was on the cover of almost every magazine."

Walsh is survived by another daughter, Courtney Taylor, son Jonathan Taylor and stepdaughters Anne Taylor Fleming and Avery Taylor.
