Catherine Schell has lived a life more dramatic and colourful than any of her many acting roles. Her story sweeps from her birth during an Allied bombing raid in Budapest to life under postwar Russian occupation, escape, and life as a refugee in Austria; a strict convent school life in America; and on to Germany, where she became an actress.
Whilst international fame would follow through roles in the James Bond and Pink Panther franchises as well as the iconic role of Maya in popular sci-fi series Space: 1999, the story off camera is altogether more human and real. An abusive husband, her father's surrender to Alzheimer's, her brother's paranoid schizophrenia, and a dominant and passionate mother all play their parts in her tale. Told engagingly and with warmth, there are highs and lows, laughter and tears, and lessons learnt as a survivor...in a life where she has been A Constant Alien.
