Mary Millington

Categories: Cinema

Model and porn actor. Born Mary Ruth Quilter, she came to fame in the long-running soft-porn film 'Come Play With Me'. However, she soon found herself being replaced by younger models, which led to a downward spiral of drug addiction, shop-lifting and debt. She died of an overdose at her home in Walton-on-the-Hill, Surrey, just 33.
