Sybil Danning Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: May 4, 1949
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001
  • Birth Name: Sybille Johanna Danninger

Austrian actress Sybil Danning went straight from the girlie magazines to the exploitation-flick field. She first grabbed audience attention in the 1970 melodrama [[Feature~V1406~Albino~derflüsterndetod]]. By the end of the '70s, she had chalked up a number of credits in such mainstream films as [[Feature~V6306~Bluebeard~bluebeard]] (1972), [[Feature~V49690~The Three Musketeers~thethreemusketeers]] (1974) Crossed Swords (1978) and Concorde: Airport 79 (1979). But while she was mere decoration in mainstream movies, she was a star in the soft-core field, displaying her talents in such esoterica as Swedish Love Games and [[Feature~V125700~Love of a French Pussycat~frenchpussycat]]. No helpless victim or mere boy-toy, Danning gained her widest audience with a series of sweat-drenched action pictures in the 1980s. Danning seemed born to appear in "babes behind bars" epics like [[Feature~V8787~Chained Heat~chainedheat]] (1983) and [[Feature~V40800~Reform School Girls~reformschoolgirls]] (1986), and was equally well-suited to portray femme fatales ([[Feature~V49438~They're Playing with Fire~theyreplayingwithfire]] [1985]), vengeful cops ([[Feature~V27823~L.A. Bounty~labounty]] [1989]) and queens of outer space ([[Feature~V37922~Phantom Empire~phantomempire]] [1989]). She could always be counted upon to possess the widest bustline in any picture she appeared in, though [[Performer~P23257~Lou Ferrigno~louferrigno]] gave her tough competition in [[Feature~V43850~The Seven Magnificent Gladiators~thesevenmagnificentgladiators]] (1984). Danning was wise enough to package that image in an amusing fashion as hostess of a series of R-rated sex 'n' violence videocassettes of the mid '80s. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
