Pamela Franklin

Pamela Franklin (born 4 February 1950) is a British actress who first appeared in films from 1961 until 1976.

Franklin was born in Yokohama, Japan and grew up in the Far East, where her father was a trader. She was sent to the Elmhurst School of Ballet in England. She made her film debut, aged 11, in The Innocents (1961), and her television debut, in the Wonderful World of Disney's, The Horse Without a Head. She received favourable critical notices for her portrayal of an unusually worldly teenager in the suspense movie The Nanny (1965).

Her first adult role was as a kidnap victim in The Night of the Following Day. Probably her best known role was as "Sandy" in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, for which she won the National Board of Review award for Best Supporting Actress. In the same year she starred in the John Huston movie, Sinful Davey with a young John Hurt, which was not successful, and failed to boost her career.

As an adult, she became somewhat typecast in horror films, after her performance in the occult thriller The Legend of Hell House. Her last film role was in The Food of the Gods, although she made television appearances until 1981.

She married actor Harvey Jason in 1971, and they live in Hollywood with their two children.
