RIP Kate O'Mara   

March 30, 2014 The world of horror lost one of the great British scream queens of the 1970s this week: Kate O'Mara, star of "Horror of Frankenstein" and "Vampire Lovers," has passed away. Kate O'Mara was a scream queen.

To the general public, the 74-year-old actress was known primarily for playing Caress Morell, the scheming sister of Alexis Colby in "Dynasty" in the 1980s, and to sci-fi fans for playing Rani in Doctor Who.

But lovers of Hammer horror will remember her for a memorable role as one of the female leads (alongside Veronica Carlson) in "Horror of Frankenstein" with Ralph Bates, and for a smaller role in the Ingrid Pitt classic "The Vampire Lovers." She's shown in the center of the ensemble promo photo from the film below.

Her official Twitter account can be found here.
