My Name is Victoria Winters...

DARK SHADOWS premiered in 1966 with no vampires or werewolves in sight, only a gothic heroine named Victoria Winters. The role was played by Alexandra Moltke, who gave a credible performance as a typical governess but had a fascinating real-life background. 

FROM IMDB: Daughter of a Danish count and diplomat, Carl Adam Greve von Moltke, and wife Mabel Wilson, and paternal granddaughter of Carl Greve von Moltke (1869-1935) and his American wife Cornelia Van Rensselaer Thayer, who had some Dutch American ancestry. 

 In the late 1970s Alexandra was the mistress of Claus von B├╝low, and claimed to be a motive for two alleged attempts by him to murder his wife.
