"In The '70s, I did create this rather aloof image. It's crazy when I think about it now because it was not the real me. A fan once told me with great respect how much he appreciated seeing a beautiful woman who could kick ass! I do think people were often in awe of me."

Valerie Therese Leon, (12 November 1943), is an English model and actress best known for her appearances in the Carry On and James Bond films.
