Born in 1943 in Hampstead, London, Margaret Nolan had a career as a glamour model named Vicky Kennedy, even posing for Playboy magazine. Entering films in 1963 in Saturday Night Out (1964) saw her catapulted into Goldfinger (1964). Often cast mainly for her fabulous buxom figure and good looks, Margaret was perfectly cast in Carry on Girls (1973), made six “Carry On…” performances, and was very successful in all of her roles, displaying good comedy acting skills. Nolan is probably best remembered for her role as ‘Dink’ in Goldfinger (1964), and for her “Carry On…” film roles. Margaret Nolan died from cancer on October 5, 2020, aged 76, in London.
In 1991, Nolan moved to Andalusia in Spain to a rural farmhouse in the mountains where she practised permaculture. It was here that she became a visual artist.
As a visual artist, Nolan produced graphic and sometimes grotesque photo montages assembled from cut-outs of her early publicity photographs.
