Susan Denberg (born Dietlinde Zechner; 2 August 1944,[1] Bad Polzin, Germany)[2] is a German-Austrian model and actress.


Raised in Klagenfurt, Austria, Susan Denberg is the stage name for Dietlinde Zechner, a chorus dancer and 1966 Playboy playmate, who made a brief brush with an acting career in the late 1960s. In addition, she did stage and dancing in London and Las Vegas.

Denberg's best known acting role was in the Hammer horror film, Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), opposite Peter Cushing. However, Denberg's voice in the film was dubbed, as her Austrian accent was considered too strong. One of her few other acting roles was in the Star Trek episode, "Mudd's Women" (1966)

After Frankenstein Created Woman, Denberg returned to Austria. Thereafter, for many years sources incorrectly reported that she had died in the late 1960s, either accidentally or through suicide.

Private life[edit]

Denberg married Anthony Scotti in Las Vegas (1965-1968). She had a son Wolfgang-Dieter in 1971; the father is of Yugoslavian descent, and a second child. Now as Dietlinde Scotti, she resides in the tenth district of Vienna, Austria.[3][4]
