Life and careerEdit
Turkel was born in New York City, New York, to a Jewish family. She was photographed for American Vogue in the late 1960s. Patrick Lichfield captured images of her on location in England, the Bahamas, and Sardinia during the early 1970s, and included them in his 1981 book, The Most Beautiful Women.
After a brief appearance in the film Paper Lion (1968), her first major role was in the 1974 film, 99 and 44/100% Dead starring her future husband Richard Harris, and they also acted together in The Cassandra Crossing (1976), Golden Rendezvous (1977) and Ravagers (1979). They were divorced in 1982. Despite their divorce she and Harris remained good friends. When Harris died in 2002, Turkel was quite saddened, and said he was her mentor and a good friend.
She portrayed comic strip heroine Modesty Blaise in a 1982 TV pilot.
Her other film roles included Portrait of a Hitman (1979), with Jack Palance, and the horror films Humanoids from the Deep (1980), Deep Space (1988) and The Fear (1995). She also played the role of modeling agent and immortal Kristen in "Chivalry," a season four episode of Highlander: The Series.
