Veronica Carleson (spelling?) starred with Christopher Lee in DRACULA HAS RISEN FROM THE GRAVE. There was once a website called Hammer Glamour. If it is still around, it may give you some information on her.

Veronica what a beautiful woman and still is. I have a picture of her drawing a picture of Christopher Lee between shots of Risen from the grave. I like behind the scene pictures like that. I believ a magazine a few years back was selling some of her drawings. She was good in Frankenstien must be destroyed. Peter Cushing has a scene where he forces himself on her. The first time i saw it ..I was like ..Ah isnt this Peter Cushing ??she was alos in horror of Frankenstien. IM not sure what other Hammer movies she did

There is a BBC documentary entitled "Flesh and Blood" recounting the history of Hammer Studios wherein Veronica Carlson details that particular scene from FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED. She, Peter Cushing and director Terence Fisher were all very much against shooting it, but did so at the insistence of the studio. Carlson reported that our beloved Peter Cushing apologized repeatedly to her before and after the scene was photographed.
