Born 1944 as Dietlinde Zechner in Bad Polzin, Germany, German-Austrian model and actress Susan Denberg was a chorus dancer and 1966 Playboy playmate, who made a brief brush with an acting career in the late 1960s. In addition, she did stage and dancing in London and Las Vegas.
Denberg’s best known acting role was in the Hammer horror film, Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), opposite Peter Cushing. However, Denberg’s voice in the film was dubbed, as her Austrian accent was considered too strong. One of her few other acting roles was in the Star Trek episode, “Mudd’s Women” (1966).
After becoming immersed in the 60s high life of drugs and sex, Denberg left show business and returned to Austria. News interviews at the time show a depressed Denberg in the company of her mother, at home in Klagenfurt. These news items, repeated in fan periodicals for years, gave the impression Denberg was suicidal or had already died. Actually, she is still alive.
