#50 Carroll Borland

13 06 2010

Professor, author and actor Carroll Borland is probably best known for playing a vampire who really wasn’t a vampire, in the 1935 film Mark of the Vampire with Bela Lugosi. She only had one line of dialogue in her only famous movie.  For the remainder of her life, she was proud an enthusiastic about both the picture and her friendship with Lugosi.  She retired from acting in 1953 to persue an academic life, but appeared in a few Fred Olen Ray pictures in the 80’s.  A month after her death in 1994, her novel, Countess Dracula, was published.
