Juliet Anne Prowse was an Indian-born South African-American dancer and actress. Over the course of her four-decade-long career, she appeared in numerous films and TV shows while being extensively active on the stage as well. Born in Bombay (now Mumbai), British India, Prowse relocated to South Africa with her mother. She started dancing when she was four years old. In the late 1950s, she was discovered by a talent agent in Paris. When Hollywood finally came calling in 1959, she had already found some success in Europe. In 1960, she appeared in the musical-comedy ‘Can-Can’, which also starred Frank Sinatra. Prowse subsequently was involved in a passionate affair with Sinatra and was even engaged to him for a short period. She later dated her ‘G.I. Blues’ co-star Elvis Presley. After her cinematic career began to fizzle out in the mid-1960s, Prowse became prominently active on television. She played the titular character in the short-lived sitcom ‘Mona McCluskey’. In the later stage of her career, she performed on stage and in the nightclub circuit. Twice married and twice divorced, Prowse died at the age of 59.
