In the 1950s she made further appearances in film, but her career took off after she moved to Madrid in 1960. From this point, the red-headed actress made many appearances in the 1960s, particularly in horror films, action or spy thrillers, and westerns. She also starred in Hercules and the Tyrants of Babylon, which was filmed in 1964.
