IMDB entry:

Simone Silva was born to French-Italian parents in Cairo as Simone de Bouillard. She was known mainly in England, where the great majority of her films were produced, as an actress of B-movies, who usually played supporting roles and bit parts.This mostly forgotten actress in some ways was more bright in life than in her very short career. Her tragic death was not entirely the result of natural causes. She was found dead in London’s fashionable Mayfair district after having apparently suffered a stroke likely brought on by a severe diet, as she struggled desperately to return to the screen in perfect shape.
