Platinum blonde, mature-looking, curvaceous Danish beauty contest winner (Miss Denmark of 1952), who came to Hollywood in the 1950s and, with her enviable figure and breathless delivery of lines, became a sort of Danish Jayne Mansfield. Born Greta Thysegen, she had made her first film Op og ned Langs Kysten, in 1950. In Hollywood, she was seen in Bus Stop (1956), Accused of Murder (1957), The Beast of Budapest (1958), Terror is a Man (1959), Three Blondes in His Life (1961), Journey to the Seventh Planet (1962), The Double-Barrelled Detective Story (1965) and Cottonpickin' Chickenpickers (1967), her last. She was also game for a laugh in several Three Stooges shorts. Later she held exhibitions of her work as an artist. Four times married.
