Margaret Lee is an interesting actress. She was born in England,
but pretty much infused herself in Italy. She was educated at the
Italia Conti Theatre School in London, and became fluent in both
English and Italian languages.
Lee was a busy actress from 1962-1985. She was
a great-looking actress, with talent, and had no trouble finding
work. But it wasn't really so much her looks or talent that gave
her a faithful following; she was just in a lot of stuff that people
liked to see. Margaret Lee was in just about every style of
Italian-made movie that was trendy at the time. These movies were
also released in America, which helped to give her a strong fan

Against the Son of Hercules" (1962), playing the part of Moah.

and horror films.
From 1966-onward, Lee dubbed most of her own films

from that union. Her sons Roberto Malerba and Damian Anderson
also entered show business, but have typically worked on the production
