Sandahl Bergman

Biography

Date of Birth 14 November 1951, Kansas City, Missouri, USA Height 5' 10" (1.78 m) Mini Biography Stunning & statuesque blonde dancer and actress who first set male hearts racing as the key dancer in the sexually charged "Airotica" dance sequence in All That Jazz (1979). Bergman appeared then in Xanadu (1980), before landing the role for which she is best remembered, as the never say die female warrior/thief "Valeria" in the Hyborean Age action of Conan the Barbarian (1982). The nimble Bergman was a superb Valeria and her athletic figure and dancer's grace made her a lethal force against the multitude of sword wielding villains trying to stop her and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Her two other most notable performances were firstly as the evil Queen Gedren in another adaption of a Robert E. Howard mythological story, Red Sonja (1985), with Bergman battling another tall blonde, Brigitte Nielsen! And secondly, buddying up with ex-wrestler Roddy Piper in the weird sci-fi satire Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988), in which once again Bergman puts her fighting skills to good use and she clobbers a lot of frog creatures! Bergman has appeared in about thirty films; however she's definitely at her best when demonstrating her athletic prowess! Spouse Josh Taylor (? - ?) (divorced) 1 child Trivia Has one daughter, Tristen. Nearly lost a finger while filming a fight scene in Conan the Barbarian (1982). She was an instructor for the FIRM series of exercise workout videos in the 1980s. Was originally offered the leading role in Red Sonja (1985) but asked to play the villain instead. Did all her own stunts in Conan the Barbarian (1982) because no stunt women could be found who matched her size. She was the first actress Arnold Schwarzenegger ever did a love scene with. He was also the first actor she ever did a love scene with. Friend of actress Kim Dufour. Attended Shawnee Mission East High School in Prairie Village, Kansas. Personal Quotes [Talking about the shoot of Conan the Barbarian]: "It was tough. I nearly lost a finger. Arnold [Schwarzenegger] smashed his head against a rock. But that was nothing compared to what the stunt men went through."
