        Biography
        B O R N  -  1 9 4 2



        In the earliest stages of her career, Swedish actress Britt Ekland was "famous for being famous" as the wife of film comedian Peter Sellers. By the 1990s she had been a major star in her own right for over 3 decades ...

          []  Birthname: Britt-Marie Eklund
          []  Born: October 6, 1942
          []  Place of birth: Stockholm, Sweden


          []  Occupation: Swedish Actress
          []  Diagnosed with: Osteoporosis (2004)
          []  Fluent in: English, French, German



        Ekland had appeared in two Italian pictures before marrying Sellers in 1963, then co-starred with her husband in After the Fox (1966) and The Bobo (1967). She enjoyed good reviews for her role as a prim Quaker girl who inadvertently invented the strip-tease in The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968).


          'The ideal man doesn`t exist. A husband is easier to find' - Britt Ekland


        Most of Ekland's subsequent films were low-budget melodramas but Ekland's hardworking ethic always meant she gave 100% to the role. She won rave reviews as James Bond's vis-a-vis in The Man With the Golden Gun (1973) and in the 1974 cult thriller, The Wicker Man.

        It is likely that Britt Ekland will be remembered for not only her cinematic triumphs; chances are future generations will also know her from her brief alliance with Peter Sellers, or from her tempestuous and well-documented private life, as recounted in her autobiography True Britt.

        Britt On Bond


        Britt Ekland on her comic turn as James Bond's Girl Friday Mary Goodnight in 1974's The Man with the Golden Gun:


          "It was one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done. But it did nothing for my career."


        Perhaps not, though the Swedish-born actress did eventually turn up in 1989's Scandal as a decadent English socialite sporting gold-painted nipples. "But you can get more publicity [from a Bond film] than you've ever had in your life," she says.

        Actually, Ekland (whose former beaux include Warren Beatty, Ryan O'Neal and Rod Stewart) has hardly lacked for attention. At 20 she wed actor Peter Sellers, then 37. Their five-year union produced a daughter, actress Victoria Sellers, now 36.

        She also has a son, Nikolai, from her relationship with record honcho Lou Adler, now an L.A. restaurateur.

        In 1980 she took up with Stray Cats drummer Jim McDonnell. (She was 38, he was 20.) Married four years later and divorced in 1992, they have a son, Thomas Jefferson, who lives with Ekland in London and L.A.

        Currently single, Ekland cut short her stage tour in the farce Run for Your Wife because, she says, "you can't do theater with a little child. There's a car full of dirty laundry waiting to be done."


          Britt's children are Victoria Sellers born in 1965; Nikolaj Adler born in 1973; and T.J McDonnell born in 1988


        In recent years, Britt has been a sought after actress in UK pantomine & has made regular guest appearances on UK TV.

        In 1998, she hit the headlines for being mugged of her Rolex watch in a London supermarket & in 2000 she fell and injured her ankles at the heavy metal magazine, Kerrang, awards in London.

        Britt also hosted a programme on BBC on the year 1971 & discussed her part in the movie of that year, Get Carter with Michael Caine.
