Demure British actress, with a slightly elfin loveliness.
RADA-trained Stephens was discovered acting in a graduate class by the Controller of the BBC, who cast her in a television adaptation of Little Women in 1950.
After making her British film debut in 1951 in His Excellency, she went on to appear in such films as Stolen Face (1952). The Red Beret (opposite Alan Ladd, 1953), For Better Or Worse (opposite Dirk Bogarde, 1954), As Long As They’re Happy (1955), Value For Money (opposite John Gregson, 1955), Pacific Destiny (1957), The Barretts of Wimpole Street (1957) and Carry On Nurse (as the nurse who finds a convenient place to deposit a daffodil, 1959).
After a couple of B-movies in 1961, Stephen decided to retire from films.
She was married from 1957 to 1977 to Nicholas Roeg, whom she met while making Pacific Destiny.
This is a lovely and
exceptionally rare original vintage black and white publicity photograph
