Beverly Adams Sassoon (born November 7, 1945) is a Canadian-American actress and author.
Beverly Adams was born in Edmonton, Alberta to a Canadian mother and a U.S. Army Air Force father (who once played minor league baseball) who was stationed at the Edmonton HQ on the Northwest Staging Route during World War II.
During her career, Adams appeared in various guest roles in television series of the 1960s. She also appeared in several films, most notably as the klutzy, redheaded Cassandra in How to Stuff a Wild Bikini and the recurring role of Lovey Kravezit in the Matt Helm movies starring Dean Martin.
She met hairstylist Vidal Sassoon in 1966, when she was sent to his London salon while she was filming Torture Garden. They married within a year, and Adams retired from acting, after fulfilling a commitment to appear in Hammerhead, to raise the couple's children.
During her retirement from acting, Adams (going by her married name of Beverly Sassoon) published several books and served as a spokeswoman for Vidal Sassoon, Inc. In 1980, the couple divorced and Adams returned to acting. She launched her own line of pet care products, Beverly Sassoon Pet Care System.
They had four children: daughter Catya (1968-2002), an actress who died from a drug-induced heart attack; son Elan BenVidal (b. January 17, 1970); son David (b. ca. 1972); and daughter Eden Sassoon (born ca. 1973).
