Beverly Elaine Aadland was 17 at the time she was with actor Errol Flynn when he died of a heart attack on October 14, 1959 in Vancouver, British Columbia at the age of 50. In 1961, Aadland's mother, Florence Aadland, alleged in the book The Big Love that actor Flynn had a sexual relationship with her daughter starting at age 15, yet there's also speculation he was led to believe she was 18. The memoir was reissued in 2018 by Spurl Editions, as well as made into a play starring Tracey Ullman. Beverly Aadland gave an account of her relationship with Flynn in People in 1988, confirming that she had had a sexual relationship with Flynn in her teens. Her relationship with Flynn was the subject of the 2013 movie The Last of Robin Hood. Aadland was played by Dakota Fanning.
Aadland was married and divorced twice before she married Ronald Fisher in the late 1960s. The couple had a daughter.
