Her work with Python is still the thing she is most famous for, yet she acted in a lot of other TV productions and films too. In the controversial (as in {{banned in| China}} the US for years) ''Series/TheAvengers'' episode "A Touch of Brimstone" she was basically a sub for the Hellfire Club. In the ''Series/AreYouBeingServed'' episode "Friends and Customer" she played a customer in their store. And in ''Series/OnlyFoolsAndHorses'' episode "The Miracle Of Peckham" she played an American reporter. In ''[[Franchise/ThePinkPanther The Return Of The Pink Panther]]'' she plays a swimming pool diver.

* AllWomenAreLustful: A stereotype she often portrayed. In "Mr. Smoketoomuch" the first thing she says to Creator/EricIdle when he enters the travel agency is: "Do you want to come upstairs?" After he fails to respond accordingly she quicky changes subject: "Or,... eh... have you come here to arrange your holiday?"
* AmericanAccents: Cleveland was born in England, but she spent a huge part of her youth in the USA. As a result she can put on an American accent fairly easily and convincingly, as demonstrated in the "Scott Of The Antarctic" sketch, where she plays a spoiled decadent Hollywood actress.
