Nolan began her career in the 1960s as a glamour model, using the stage moniker Vicky Kennedy, but stuck to her real name as she pursued acting.
In 1964, she rose to prominence as the gold-painted model in the famed title sequence of 007 movie “Goldfinger”, in which she also played Dink, the masseuse for James Bond, portrayed by Sean Connery, and appeared in The Beatles film “A Hard Day’s Night”.
She went on to feature in “Ferry Cross the Mersey”, the movie musical starring rock band Gerry and the Pacemakers, and joined the “Carry On” comedy franchise with her first of many parts in “Carry On Cowboy”.
Nolan’s other acting credits included series like “Steptoe and Son”, and Spike Milligan‘s “Q…”, and movies such as “The Great St Trinian’s Train Robbery”, “No Sex Please”, “We’re British”, and Yvonne Deutschman’s 2011 film “The Power of Three”, which marked her onscreen return after an almost three decade-long hiatus.
Wright’s “Last Night in Soho”, one of Nolan’s last projects, is set for release in April, 2021.
