Ekland established herself as a "Swedish bombshell" in the 1960s during her first marriage to legendary British comedian Peter Sellers with whom she appeared in the movies After The Fox (1966) and The Bobo (1967). Following her divorce from Sellers in 1968, she continued her film career successfully in Get Carter (1971) and the James Bond film, The Man With The Golden Gun. She had a long-term relationship with singer Rod Stewart during this period.
From the 1980s on, her acting roles were more in independent films though she played Superman's mother Lara in a two-part episode of the 1990 TV series Superboy (former big-screen 007 George Lazenby played Jor-El).
In 2004, Ekland was portrayed by Charlize Theron in the cable-movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.
