Sarah Douglas has often portrayed evil characters, notably Ursa, the cohort of Terence Stamp's General Zog in both "Superman" (1978) and "Superman II" (1980) and subsequently in many low-budget or straight-to-video horror films.
Douglas received her training at the Rose Bruford College and made her stage debut with the National Youth Theatre of Britain, appearing in productions such as "Zigger Zigger" and "Fuzz". She segued to the small screen with such BBC productions as "Return of the Saint" and "Bergerac". While Douglas was first seen by American audiences as Dracula's ill-fated third wife in the well-crafted CBS TV-movie "Dracula" (1974), she may be better known for her stint as the trouble-making Pamela Lynch on the CBS primetime soap "Falcon Crest" (1983-85). Sci-fi fanciers may recall her as one of the survivors in "V: The Final Battle" (NBC, 1984). Additionally, Douglas has used her distinctive voice for characters on animated series like "Iron Man" (syndicated, 1994-95).
