Ursula Andress ACTOR


Ursula Andress was born on March 19th, 1936 in Ostermundigen, Bern Switzerland to a family of seven children total.  At the age of seventeen she ran away with an Italian actor until her parents intervened and made her return home.  She always expressed an interest in seeing the rest of the world outside Switzerland.  She was a beautiful woman and wanted to have a career in entertainment.
Her acting career began working on Italian films and was soon signed with Columbia Pictures.  She relocated to the United States and in 1957 married John Derek which actually put a halt to her acting career.
In 1962 she gained popularity from critics when she was cast in the film, "Dr. No" making her one of the most desirable woman in the film industry.  Her accent was so strong that many of her films dubbed her voice.  The success of this film opened up a number of film roles for her such as "4 for Texas" (1963) starring Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, "What's New Pussycat" (1965), "The 10th Victim" (1965), "The Blue Max" (1966), "Casino Royale" (1966), for which she won a Golden Globe Award and "The Sensuous Nurse" (1975).
Her marriage had ended to Derek in 1966 and in 1979 she began a relationship with Harry Hamlin whom she worked with on the set of the film, "Clash of the Titans" (1981) and with whom she had her only child at the age of forty three.  

After giving birth she put more focus towards her family and less towards her career mostly working on European films.  Her last film role was in 1997 in, "Cremaster 5".  She had ended her relationship with Hamlin in 1982 and never remarried but did spend the remainder of her life living with a man named Lorenzo Rispoli.
Andress was chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Stars in film history and was voted "Best Bond Girl of All Time" by the readers of British newspaper Daily Mail in 2008.
