Shock’s Wicked Women: Yutte Stensgaard

Recognizing horror’s foxy ladies

Denmark’s Yutte Stensgaard was born Jytte Stensgaard in 1946. Her short-lived career in film found her hopping through sundry genres, however, horror fans remember her from her turns in Scream and Scream Again – the 1970 film with Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing – and Hammer’s Lust for a Vampire (pictured covered in blood below) in which she played Carmilla Karnstein, a role formerly filled by Ingrid Pitt in The Vampire Lovers. Stensgaard would appear in an episode of Dead of Night in 1972 before slowly slipping out of showbiz. She now works in the American radio.
