Meet Valerie Leon at the Film and Comic Con Birmingham!

If you happen to be in or around Birmingham on 2nd June, why not pop along to meet the very lovely Valerie Leon at the Showmasters Collectormania Film and Comic Con? Taking place at Birmingham's National Exhibition Centre, Valerie will be appearing on the Saturday only.

Valerie will be signing autographs, meeting fans and taking part in paid photo shoots.

Valerie Leon has been appearing in films, television and on stage since the late 1960s. Her career has taken in all three of the most well-known, popular and long-lasting British film franchises: James Bond, Hammer Horror and of course, Carry On. Valerie appeared opposite the late Sir Roger Moore in the 1977 James Bond epic, The Spy Who Loved Me. Six years later she worked with Sean Connery on the unofficial Bond film, Never Say Never Again.

Valerie took the dual leading role in the classic, cult Hammer Horror, Blood from the Mummy's Tomb in 1971 playing both Margaret and Tera. Valerie first appeared as one of the Harem girls in 1968's Carry On Up The Khyber before returning for roles as a Sales Assistant in Camping, Deirdre in Again Doctor and Leda in Up The Jungle. Valerie returned to the Carry Ons to play pregnant film star Jane Darling in Carry On Matron in 1971 before taking on her final role as Bernard Bresslaw's fiancee Paula in Carry On Girls, undergoing a remarkable transformation half way through the film!

On television, Valerie has appeared in many classic shows over the years. These have included guest roles in The Saint, The Avengers, Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased), The Persuaders and The Goodies.

So if you fancy the chance to meet one of the most iconic actresses of the 1960s and 1970s, Birmingham is the place to be!
