The Telegraph has reported that Ingrid Pitt, who survived a wartime Nazi concentration camp and went on to star as the voluptuous bloodsucker in several classic horror films, including Countess Dracula, in which she took the title role, died on November 23 at the age of 73.

She also appeared on television in Doctor Who, and as a judge on the ITV talent show New Faces.
