Yvette Mimieux Facts

  1. It was talent manager Jim Byron who suggested her to become an actress.
  2. She appeared as Kim Stacy, a glamorous CIA agent, in the 1970 adventure film, The Delta Factor, starring alongside Christopher George.
  3. Yvette Mimieux eventually became displeased with the kind of roles offered to female actors and once stated, “The women they [male screenwriters] write are all one dimensional,” she said.”They have no complexity in their lives. It’s all surface. There’s nothing to play. They’re either s*x objects or vanilla pudding.”
  4. She wrote and starred as Angela de Vries in the 1974 made-for-TV action drama thriller film, Hit Lady. Regarding her character in the film, she stated that the more she thought about the character “the more I wanted to play her. Here was the kind of nifty, multifaceted part I’d been looking for. So instead of a short story, I wrote it as a film.”
