Kirsten Lindholm, born Kirsten Lindholm Andreassen on 1 September 1943 in Odense, Denmark,[1][2] was a model and a film actress in Hammer horror movies, in which she first appeared as Kirsten Betts. She is now a yoga instructor and performer currently living in New Zealand and is now known as Elandra Kirsten Meredith and by the Sikh religious name Vikram Kaur Khalsa (Punjabi: ਵਿਕਰਮ ਕੌਰ ਖਾਲਸਾ).

She was raised in New Zealand, where she won prizes for ballroom dancing. While majoring in languages at Auckland University, she acted in several plays.[3]

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, as Kirsten Betts and then Kirsten Lindholm, she was an actress and model. She appeared in a London play called Pyjama Tops (1969),[4] in the movie Zeta One (1969),[5] and then in four Hammer horror movies: The Vampire Lovers (1970),[6][7] during filming for which she appeared as one of a “[v]ampire quintet” on the cover of ABC Film Review,[8] Crescendo (1970),[9] Twins of Evil (1971),[10] where her role has been cited as an example of psychological violence,[11] and Lust for a Vampire (1971).[1][12][13]
