I am very sad to hear that actress Madeleine Collinson, passed away last night. Madeleine and her twin sister Mary starred with Peter Cushing in the Hammer film ‘Twins of Evil’ in 1971.
Madeleine Collinson was born on July 22, 1952 in Malta. She’s the identical twin sister of Madeleine Collinson. The Collinson twins arrived in Britain in April, 1969. Noted British glamor photographer Harrison Marks cast the duo as saucy maids in his 8mm short “Halfway Inn.” Mary and Madeleine were the Playmates of the Month in the October, 1970 issue of “Playboy;” they have the distinction of being the first pair of identical twins to pose for a nude pictorial in “Playboy.” The Collinson sisters went on to act in a handful of movies together; they were especially effective and memorable as the radically contrasting siblings in the typically fine Hammer vampire horror outing “Twins of Evil”. with Peter Cushing.
