Patty Shepard


Born - 1 October 1944, Greenville, South Carolina, USA
Died - 3 January 2013

Slightly-built, raven-haired American-born actress of rather unsettling attractiveness, who, after moving to Spain in 1963, spent her entire career starring in Spanish films - most of them 'paella westerns' or horror films. Her offbeat prettiness chilled many a spine in the latter genre. After a low-key debut in La Ciudad no es para Mi (1966), she went on to make Lucky (1967), Dracula Versus Frankenstein (1970), Walpurgis Night (1971), The Legend of Frenchie King (1971), My Dear Killer (1972), Witches' Mountain (1972), Crypt of the Living Dead (1973), The Man Called Noon (1973), Watch Out, We're Mad (1974), The Stranger and the Gunfighter (1974), Refuge of Fear (1975), The Burned City (1976), Everyone Calls Me The Cat (1980), Devils of the Sea (1982), Slugs (1987) and Edge of the Axe (1988), her last. The older sister of actress Judith Chapman, she died from a heart attack.
