WCW: Elizabeth Berrington


English actress Elizabeth Berrington just has one of those faces, where I always recognize her (and, generally, remember her hilarious role as Marie Antoinette in Let Them Eat Cake). Let’s take a look at her frock flick roles!


Celeste in 8 ½ Women (1999)

She’s a maid, I guess?

I guess she works in the prison with Kate Winslet’s character?


Elizabeth in The Little Vampire (2000)

2000 The Little Vampire

It’s a modern movie, but this looks period, so I’m guessing that’s the outfit from when she became a vampire?

    I LOVED her as Marie Antoinette! With her totally made-up German words, «Nicht die sexy Fondling! » :))
    I wish they had made a second season, this series was so good!
