Actress Lesley-Anne Down

If you remember the seventies fondly, it might be because you remember Lesley-Anne Down.

The sultry British actress gained attention from American audiences with her role as Georgina Worsley in the television series "Upstairs, Downstairs" in the early seventies (aired in Britain on ITV and in America on PBS), and in movies as well. She played a gorgeous Russian assassin in 1976's The Pink Panther Strikes Again (with Peter Sellers) and a British woman who falls in love with an American Army lieutenant (played by Harrison Ford) during World War II in 1979's Hanover Street.

Much of her best-known work is in television, though, as she is recognized more recently for her roles in two American soap operas - "Sunset Beach," from 1997 to 1999, and "The Bold and the Beautiful," where she has been since 2003.
