|Also known as:||Sabrina, Norma Skyes|
|Born:||May 19, 1936|
Stockport, Cheshire, England
|Died:||November 24, 2016 (aged 80)|
Born in Stockport, Cheshire, she moved to London in 1952 as a teenager, and did some nude modelling, the evidence of which she later tried to destroy. She adopted the pseudonym Sabrina. In 1955, she played the dumb blonde sidekick in Arthur Askey's new ITV series, Before Your Very Eyes, and this soon made her a household name. The Goon Show scripts are littered with references to her bosom such as "by the measurements of Sabrina!" and "by the sweaters of Sabrina!"
In one of her first movie roles, Blue Murder at St Trinian's (1957) she had a non-speaking role in which she was only required to sit up in bed wearing a nightdress, reading a book, while the action took place around her — despite sharing equal billing with the star Alastair Sim on posters and appearing in many publicity stills in school uniform. She appeared in a few more films and made recordings as a singer. Her penultimate movie role was in the horror movie The Ice House (1969), as a replacement for Jayne Mansfield who had recently died in a car accident. Her last film was a year later in the western, The Phantom Gunslinger (1970) where she starred alongside the late Troy Donahue.
During her years of fame she toured the world and was romantically linked with several celebrities, including singers Johnny Ray and Frank Sinatra, actor Sean Connery and famously well-endowed B-movie star Steve Cochran. In 1967 she later married Dr Harold Melsheimer, a Hollywood plastic surgeon. They divorced ten years later. She currently lives in North Hollywood.
