Nancie Wait

A native of Chicago, Nancie Wait moved to London in the early seventies to study at RADA. In order to pay for her lessons she spent her evenings working as a bunny girl. It was either at RADA or perhaps the playboy club where she was discovered by the film director Val Guest who cast her in his 'swinging' comedy Au Pair Girls (1972). However despite Guest referring to her as his 'very impressive new find' and her quite credible acting in the film, Nancie was pretty much a one movie wonder. Her second film, the careerist sex comedy _Amorous Milkman, The (1974)_ was a financial and critical disaster, none more so than for its director, the actor Derren Nesbitt, who had sold his yacht and re-mortgaged his house in order to pay for the film. The Amorous Milkman evidently didn't do Nancie's career much good either, as despite promoting herself and the film by being the subject of a Cinema X magazine centrefold she never appeared in another film.
