Celeste Yarnall Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 1946
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

The only child of a Navy Commander, American actress [[Performer~P212118~Celeste Yarnell~celesteyarnell]] was given her first name because (as the actress told [[Feature~V93981~TV Guide~theguide]] in 1968) her mother thought she was "celestial." Cashing in early on her cool-blonde beauty, Yarnell was the last winner of the Miss Rheingold crown (the contest was sponsored by a New York-based brewery), a fashion model, and a bit actress in the years before she met her future husband, Sheldon Silverstein, at a Hollywood party. Silverstein became her manager and schemed to turn his new client into the next [[Performer~P75368~Raquel Welch~raquelwelch]] by squiring her around at the Cannes Film Festival. The result was a slew of magazine cover appearances and the starring role in a British-Spanish "nudie" jungle movie titled [[Feature~V90637~Eve~eve]] (1968), which showed Yarnell's physical attributes, if not her acting skills, to good advantage. She later appeared in [[Feature~V29717~Live a Little, Love a Little~livealittlelovealittle]] (1968) opposite Elvis Presley, but the bulk of Yarnell's work in the late '60s was on TV shows like It Takes a Thief, Land of the Giants, and Star Trek. Yarnell never truly got past the "This Year's Blonde" stage, and by the '70s was being featured in blood-spattered horror pictures and Philippine-made adventure quickies. Like many former starlets, [[Performer~P212118~Celeste Yarnell~celesteyarnell]] left the business for the more financially rewarding -- and less exploitative -- world of real estate. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
