Valerie Gaunt in Horror of Dracula.


Valerie Gaunt's double in Horror of Dracula

Valerie Gaunt (1932 - 2016)

Film Deaths Edit

  • The Curse of Frankenstein (1957) [Justine]: Killed off-screen, presumably either strangled or beaten to death by the monster, Christopher Lee, after Peter Cushing locks her in the laboratory with it, after she tries to blackmail Peter. We only hear her screams from the other side of the door; her body is not shown afterwards. Valerie was pregnant at the time of her death, consequently, her unborn child also died.
  • Horror of Dracula (Dracula) (1958) [Vampire Woman]: Stabbed in the heart with a wooden stake by John Van Eyssen as she lies in her coffin. After death, her body ages rapidly. (an older actress was used to “double” as her corpse, rather than a make-up job on Valerie.) Her body is shown again later on when Peter Cushing arrives at the castle and discovers her. (Thanks to Peter)
