Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress and model best known for her on-screen horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cassandra gained prominence by becoming the gothic goddess, Elvira the Mistress of Dark on KHJ’s weekly show, Movie Macabre. Before Elvira, Peterson was a showgirl and had small roles as a topless dancer in the 1974 film The Working Girls and as a showgirl in the James Bond movie Diamonds are Forever. In addition to acting, Cassandra was the lead singer of an Italian rock band, I Latins Ochanats, which led her to appearance in the 1972 comedy, Roma. Peterson eventually joined musical/comedy acts Mamma’s Boys and The Groundings, where Elvira slowly surfaced. Peterson took it to another level when she auctioned for The Vampira Show and was offered the role. Thus Elvira the Mistress of Dark was fully born. As Elvira did not fit the ‘Vampira image’, the name of the show was changed to Movie Macabre. The character became a cult figure during the 1980s ad 1990s, with Peterson hosting numerous home horror movies, appearing in comic books and even video games. She also made guest appearances in Chips, The Fall Guy and Fantasy Island. Out of character, Peterson appeared in Pee-wee’s Big Adventure and Allen Quatermain and The Lost City of Gold, starring alongside Sharon Stone.
Cassandra Peterson (born September 17, 1951) is an American actress best known for her on-screen horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. She gained fame on Los Angeles television station KHJ wearing a black, gothic, cleavage-enhancing gown as host of Movie Macabre, a weekly horror movie presentation. Her wickedly vampish appearance is offset by her comical character, quirky and quick-witted personality, and Valley girl-type speech.
