Happy Birthday Suzanne Danielle!

Today sees Carry On Emmannuelle leading lady Suzanne Danielle celebrate her 62nd birthday.

Born in January 1957, Suzanne had only made three brief screen appearances before being cast in the leading role of Emmannuelle Prevert opposite Kenneth Williams. She had two uncredited performances, one as a disco dancer in the infamous film The Stud and another as a girl at a party in the film The Wild Geese. Suzanne also had a few lines in an episode in  the first series of The Professionals, filmed in 1977. Not a lot to go on before being cast in the last Carry On film of the 1970s.

More small film roles followed in the likes of Arabian Adventure and The Golden Lady (both 1979) while later that year she went on to appear in four episodes of Doctor Who for the BBC. Further television roles followed, working with impressionist Mike Yarwood and guest starring in Hammer House of Horror and Tales of the Unexpected, both popular series in the early 1980s. 

Later film roles followed including the Cannon and Ball big screen outing, The Boys in Blue, which saw her working again with Jack Douglas. Suzanne's last film role came in the Donald Sutherland film The Trouble with Spies, released in 1987. Suzanne also worked again with Carry On co-stars Joan Sims and Kenneth Connor in the pantomime Jack and The Beanstalk at the Richmond Theatre in 1984.

Suzanne Danielle was in a relationship with fellow actor (and one time Carry On star) Patrick Mower for several years in the late 1970s and early 1980s. By the mid-1980s Suzanne had met the Scottish golfer Sam Torrance. Danielle and Torrance eventually married in Scotland in 1995.

Whatever Suzanne is up to today, I hope she has a lovely birthday.
