RIP Ingrid Pitt

It’s with a sad heart that we must pass on the news that Hammer and Horror Icon Ingrid Pitt passed away today. BBC News reports that she collapsed  three days ago and was informed that she was suffering from Heart failure.

Ingrid was a star of the more racey of Hammer’s output in the later years of their heyday, but that shouldn’t diminish the impact she had on the viewing audience.

Alongside her appearances in Hammer movies Ingrid also starred in two Doctor Who stories, The Time Warrior and Warriors of the Deep.

Ingrid was still highly active on the conventions circuit and wrote a few books about the genre.

RIP Ingrid, you will be sorely missed.
