Jocelyn Lane

Jocelyn "Jackie" Lane (born 1937) was an actress and model of the 1960s. She was married to Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. Lane was born as Jocelyn Bolton in Vienna in 1937, the daughter of a Russian mother, Olga Mironova, and an English father. She was educated in New Rochelle, New York, United States. At the age of 14, she moved to the United Kingdom where she received dance training. Her elder sister, Mara Lane, was a model. Lane established herself as a popular model in the United Kingdom by the time she was 18, using the pseudonym Jackie Lane. She appeared in several British films beginning in 1955 with a travelogue April in Portugal. As she was confused with another actress named Jackie Lane (known for starring in Doctor Who), when Lane moved to Hollywood in 1964, she began to be credited with her full first name. Her resemblance to Bardot was widely remarked upon. In 1965, she co-starred with Elvis Presley in Tickle Me and later appeared in several roles in Hollywood films, including as a "biker chick" in Hell's Belles in 1969. She also made guest appearances on American television series. She retired in the 1970s.
