  • Casting Gag: In Social Suicide, a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, she played Julia's (the Juliet character) mother. Her former co-star from the 1968 film, Leonard Whiting, played her husband, Julia's father (her daughter India Eisley played Julia-the modern Juliet-herself).
  • Ms. Fanservice: Hussey became famous as Juliet in 1968, briefly appearing topless, while some of her later roles had this too, well into her 50s.
  • Rapunzel Hair: That incredibly long hair when she played Juliet became a trademark look for her.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: She has these looks.
